Welcome Message

Children's Health Foundation Welcome MessageTHANK YOU for helping to improve and save children’s lives. 

We are humbled and inspired daily by the bravery, strength and perseverance of our patients and families, the generosity of our donors, the compassion of our health care teams, the tenacity of our researchers and the incredible dedication of our over 700 volunteers.

YOU are our inspiration and motivation for wanting to do even more, and thanks to caring supporters like you, 2013-14 has been a remarkable year, full of important advances, new research discoveries and lifesaving care at our partner institutions. This past year Children’s has developed and launched a new strategic plan, reinforced our mission and vision, and successfully applied for, and was accredited by Imagine Canada – joining 108 other Canadian charities who have achieved this reflection of best practices among fundraising organizations.

Thanks to our generous donors and our partnership with Children’s Miracle Network, together we raised $11.6 million to fund urgently needed equipment, support crucial programs aligned with our philosophy of family-centred health care, and helped pave the path to new research discovery and innovation.
