Since becoming a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner in 1991, Ace Hardware has raised more than $64 million for local Children’ s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. This success stems from the creative fundraising efforts of the Ace Hardware Foundation and the generous contributions of Ace retailers, Ace customers, vendor partners and Ace team members.
Participating Ace retailers support their local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital each year through many national programs; “Ace Cares for Kids” Icon Campaign, Blue CMN Bucket Promotion, Change Canister’s, Change Round-Up, World’s Finest Chocolate Candy Program and CMN Ornament Sales to raise funds locally. Ace Corporation, Retailers and Ace Retail Support Centers host a number of regional fundraising events each year ranging from 5K’s, motorcycle charity rides, golf outings, barbeque events, and employee sales.
The Ace Hardware Foundation also hosts a number of major fundraising events each year. Two of Ace's largest fundraisers include the annual Ace Hardware Foundation Vendor Golf Outing, the largest event of its kind in the Chicago area, and the annual Ace Celebrity Golf Shootout.
