Financial Tip

A Stand for Charity
Children and young adults can get a sense of how the franchise process works, and raise money for a good cause, by opening a lemonade stand. Through Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, families can help fight childhood cancer, one cup at a time.

When you register a lemonade stand at alexslemonade.org, the Foundation - like a franchisor would - provides you just about everything you need to conduct your fundraising event. Some of the items you'll receive include a fundraising kit with a "How to" booklet, promotional banners and signs and materials regarding childhood cancer. In addition, the Foundation will list your stand on its website and create a personal fundraising webpage for you.

Alexandra "Alex" Scott (1996-2004) is the inspiration behind Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation. She was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma, a rare form of childhood cancer, before her first birthday. At the age of 4, Alex announced that she wanted to hold a lemonade stand to raise money to help find a cure for all children with cancer. Since Alex held that first stand, the Foundation bearing her name has evolved into a national fundraising movement. To date, Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 charity, has raised more than $60 million toward fulfilling Alex's dream of finding a cure, funding over 300 research projects nationally.
