Give Your Time

The Value of Your Time

Donations don't always come in the form of money. If you are interested in hosting or planning an event, volunteering or creating your own event online to help make a difference, start here.

Host an Event

Events planned by groups throughout our community are a vital source of funds for the Spectrum Health Foundation. Events planned and hosted by an individual who is not a foundation representative are "third party events." These events benefit the hospital, but are not organized by the hospital or the foundation.

We are here to help you have a successful event, from completing your third party event application, to planning your event and working with the media to publicize it. Our fundraising guidelines list specifically how we can help you with your event as well as the legal guidelines required for our third party event sponsors.


You can make a world of difference in the lives of others in a very personal way by donating your time and services at Spectrum Health or Helen DeVos Children's Hospital. Among the myriad of rewarding opportunities to help others, you could join a Spectrum Health guild, work with a certified Child Life Specialist, prepare meals for families at the Renucci Hospitality House, and much more.

Team Up for Health!

Team up helps you create custom peer-to-peer events that allow you to choose the priority for fundraising. Events range from supporting clinical research to remembering a loved one or sponsoring participation in an event.
