What to do with cash or check donations?

Most donations through Extra Life are made online, by the website or through fundraising widgets on live stream platforms like Twitch and YouTube. There are some instances where you might receive an “offline” donation (cash or check) from your supporters.

Follow this process to make sure you receive full credit toward your fundraising total and so that your chosen member Children’s Miracle Network Hospital gets these funds.

  1. Make checks payable to: Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals and have the donor write your name in the memo line.
  2. Add the offline donation to your Extra Life account.
  3. Complete the offline donation form.
  4. Mail the donation and the form to:

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
ATTN: Extra Life
205 West 700 South
Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Double Your Total with Matching Gifts:

Make sure your donor submits their donation to their employer. Most companies will match donations made by their employees. If they don’t know how to do this, they can check with their Human Resources Department.

If your donor is giving you cash,

Please get a cashier’s check or money order and put your name in the memo line (we don’t want cash to get lost in the mail, right?)

How to Add Check or Cash Donations to your Personal Fundraising Page


Log into your personal fundraising page on

Hover over the icon: Donations

Click “Add Offline Donation”


Download/print your offline donation form. It will be pre-populated with your name, email, and address.

Set that form aside (we’ll get back to it after step 3)


Complete the fields on the webpage with the donor’s information; then click the button: “Add Donation”


Return to the offline donation form that you printed on Step 2 and add the donor/donation info.

Then, mail this printed form with your check(s) or money order(s) to:

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals
ATTN: Extra Life
205 West 700 South
Salt Lake City, UT 84101

Please note that these offline donations will appear on your personal page and thermometer, but will not count toward Platinum Reward Unlocks (or credited to the main event total) until received and verified by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Our awesome accounting department will deposit your check when it gets to our office. As long as your name (as shown on your Extra Life account) is mentioned on the check and noted that the funds are for Extra Life, they will be sure to allocate the funds to your Extra Life page.

Because of mailing and processing times, please allow about two weeks for offline donations to be reflected on your fundraising page.
