Children's Hospital Foundation

The Children's Hospital Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization that serves as the fundraising arm for Children's National Health System in Washington, D.C. The foundation partners with individual donors, corporations, and community organizations to help the doctors, nurses, and clinicians at Children's National fulfill their vision to transform children's health in the Washington area, across the country, and around the world. Our mission is to raise money to support Children's National Health System.

The foundation does not provide grants to other organizations or individuals.

Philanthropy makes a difference

At Children’s National Health System, we believe that the future of health begins with our youngest citizens. By developing novel, research-based solutions for children, we can improve the health of people throughout their lives. This starts with innovation, which is at the heart of all that we do. We recognize that it is only by pushing the boundaries of thought—by thinking bigger and differently—that we can revolutionize health for children around the world.  At Children’s National, scientists and clinicians work hand by hand to enable clinical trials and develop cures for our young patients. It is a unique concept which includes collaborations with other research institutes worldwide.

Philanthropy is essential to enable Children’s Research Institute to continually make new discoveries by conducting groundbreaking research. As today’s healthcare environment shifts to more of a population-based model of care, hospitals and health systems will find themselves under more financial pressures than ever. It is only through contributions from donors like you that we will be able to fund cutting-edge research to save young lives.You can make an impact on children’s lives! With your support and your partnership, we can give every child the best possible chance for a healthy future. Join us and stand up for children!
