Every Gift Makes a Difference

CHKD opened in 1961 with the promise to help every child who needs our services. That solemn pledge is still at the heart of all we do throughout the CHKD Health System, but we can’t do it without your help.

Whether a child needs hospitalization, ongoing care for a chronic illness, outpatient surgery or primary care, CHKD provides the staff, facilities, and technologies that address the unique demands of childhood.  

No matter how you choose to donate, your contribution allows us to continue our mission and bring skilled, family-centered, and compassionate care to children and families in our community.  Learn more about where your support goes here.

The Value of Our Community Benefit

With the help of our generous community, CHKD is able to ease the government's burden of caring for our region's most vulnerable children. We subsidize needed pediatric services that no one else in our region offers. We advance general and professional understanding of children's health and collaborate with others who share our devotion to children to create a safer, healthier, and more equitable future for all.
