There are three easy ways to lend your support:

Since 2004, the Caring for Kids Radiothon has raised over $23 million to meet the Hospital’s most urgent needs. Let’s make this one the best yet!

All the funds raised will go towards the Healthy Kids Fund to support the Hospital’s most urgent needs, to help with the purchase of medical and surgical equipment or to fund innovative programs for instance.

By supporting the Healthy Kids Fund, you provide the hospital with the flexibility to direct funds where they are needed most, when they are needed most. Donations may be used to:

  • Purchase life-saving medical equipment
  • Fund research into childhood diseases, such as diabetes and cancer
  • Teach the next generation of doctors and nurses
  • Helping families facing financial difficulties due to their child’s hospitalization
  • Other important priorities that depend on your generosity.

Your donation is vital to the Hospital's success as a world leader in pediatric healthcare. When you make a donation to the healthy Kids Fund to support the Hospital’s most urgent needs, you help transform care for countless of patients and their families.
