What does a Children's Leader do?

1) Commit to a $1,000 annual investment in child health to be pooled together

By leveraging the collective investment of the group, Children's Leaders will have the opportunity to create significant impact for paediatric patients across our region. There are numerous ways for Leaders to finance the investment:

  • One-time payment;
  • Monthly installments
2) Learn about the highest priority needs at Children's
Learn where to invest to save and improve lives. The health care practitioners, rehabilitation therapists, and researchers in our Children's family will highlight priority needs, providing the information you need to transform your support into better care for our kids.
3) Decide which project(s) the Leaders fund will support
Collaborate, designate funds, and create real change at Children's. At the end of each year, Children's Leaders will collectively decide which project(s) to fund with their pooled investments.
