The Dake Foundation for Children relies on public contributions for funding. Individuals and corporate donations are tax-deductible and essential to our mission. We are ever grateful to our local sponsors who believe in our cause.
Every spring, the Dake Foundation for Children hosts an evening mixer "Childs Play" for a night of music, food & drinks and fun at a new location each year.
This is our major fundraising event and is a great way to raise money while taking your chance on raffles with great prizes or participating in our ‘silent auctions’ to win amazing experiences like concert tickets to SPAC’s biggest shows.
All the money raised at this event goes directly towards our grant giving to children with disabilities. Go to our Facebook event to learn more and buy tickets!
Each autumn, the Dake Foundation for Children hosts a stationary bike race at the Saratoga YMCA that raises on average $20,000 through the support of sponsors and community members who participate. Each team has a chance to win great prizes through fundraising, cycling skills, and raffles.
This bike race is one of our primary ways to raise money for things like adaptive bikes so children with disabilities can participate freely and independently with their family and friends.
All funds raised at this event will go directly towards our grants and the purchase of things such as adaptive equipment. Sign up your team and ride with us this fall!
