About Children's Miracle Network Hospitals

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) -- the alliance of premier hospitals for children -- is a nonprofit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals across North America. Each year, the 170 hospitals within CMNH provide the finest medical care, lifesaving research, and preventive education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind.

When a donation is made through a CMNH sponsored activity, it stays in the community, helping local kids. Since 1983, CMNH has raised more than $8.5 billion, most of it $1 at a time. These donations have gone to support research and training, purchase equipment, and pay for uncompensated care, all in support of our mission to save and improve the lives of as many children as possible.


Fundraising Opportunities in 2024

As part of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals, CHKD partners with businesses and organizations to support local fundraising campaigns that raise money for medical care, equipment, and therapy programs that save and improve the lives of children across Hampton Roads, the Eastern Shore of Virginia, and northeastern North Carolina.

We are fortunate to work with several local partners of CMNH. Find upcoming fundraising opportunities with your favorite retailers below.
