Third-Party Events

Did you know that you can host creative and meaningful events to benefit Smart Start of Mecklenburg County and the families we serve?

If you want to host a third-party event to benefit Smart Start of Mecklenburg County, please complete and submit the form below. An internal committee will review event requests to determine if the event aligns with our mission, vision, and values.

Once your event request is approved, a staff member will work with you to plan and execute the event. We ask that all funds collected from the event be delivered to Smart Start of Mecklenburg County within 30 days after the event.



  • Host a collection drive for students at MECK Pre-K sites.
  • Request a speaker for an upcoming event.
  • Create a third-party fundraiser campaign on Give Lively. You can create your own fundraising page, share your page on social media, and invite friends, family, and coworkers to donate.
