Donations from people like you make a measurable impact on children's lives.

Donations allow Children’s National to improve care and improve lives. Specifically, philanthropic support helps pioneer new treatments and therapies, fuels research to find cures to childhood diseases, and ensures that every child we care for can receive the same level of expert care. Our statistics – how many children we’ve treated, the value of our work in the community, and the number of families we reach throughout the world – only tell part of the story. The real impact of philanthropy is in the lives of children who have new hope for a healthy future.
