Designate Your Gift

Donations that are not designated for a specific program are critical to our ability to meet our most urgent needs, improve care, and launch innovative programs. If you prefer, you may designate how you would like your gift to be used with this donation form.

Many donors who are motivated to give for a specific purpose have personal reasons for doing so. You may wish to learn about some of our programs.

Donate your Vehicle

Our vehicle donation partner—Kids Car Donations—offers fast, free pickup at a time and date convenient to you, and both running and non-running vehicles are accepted. We can accept vehicles such as cars, trucks, SUVs, motorcycles, minivans, boats and other watercrafts, RVs, motorhomes, campers, trailers, fleet vehicles, and specialty vehicles such as golf carts and ATVs. If you have questions about this program, please call (877) 338-1018.

Plan A Gift

Planned gifts help improve the care of children for generations to come while offering financial benefits for donors. Such gifts include bequests in wills, life income plans, and beneficiary designation of retirement assets, life insurance policies, and securities. Donors who make such contributions in one of these ways are eligible to join the Guardian Society. To learn more about planned giving, get information online  or contact Tamara Sperling by email or at 301-244-6242.

Recognition Levels

Our Circles of Leadership program recognizes philanthropists who share a commitment to improving children’s health. The program features four levels of recognition, beginning at $1,000.

Give Monthly

Monthly giving can be beneficial to both donors and Children’s National: It can fit a donor’s financial situation better while providing sustained support for children.

Give Stocks and Securities

You can easily make a gift of marketable securities to Children’s National Hospital. Details can be found here, or call our Foundation offices at 301-565-8500 for more information on how to make your gift.
