When you support Children's Hospital Colorado, you're playing an active role in reimagining children's health through patient care, education, research and advocacy. We can’t achieve our goal of giving children a healthier future without your generosity.

Here, you make the difference

As one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals, we need your help to deliver the best care for kids. Your support allows us to provide world-class healthcare for more than 200,000 children in Colorado communities every year.

Read the Children’s Hospital Colorado Foundation annual report to learn about the impact our supporters make every day.

Your support fuels our ability to treat every child

Children’s Colorado is the only comprehensive, nonprofit pediatric hospital in a 500-mile radius. Every day, families across the state and beyond count on us for lifesaving, life-changing treatment.

Providing this treatment requires significant resources. Kids are different from adults in many ways, and they need care designed for kids, including advanced equipment and pediatric specialists.

We believe kids deserve the best care possible, so we help every child who needs us, regardless of how much their family can pay. We can only do this because of generous, dedicated supporters like you.

Your support makes care for the whole family possible

When a child is sick, parents and siblings hurt, too. Our unique pediatric programs and specialists help the entire family cope with treatment, medical challenges and hospital stays. Your support ensures that everyone gets the services they need to heal.

Your support helps us pioneer new ways to care for kids

We are among the world’s leaders in providing award-winning pediatric care, driven by pioneering research and innovation. These initiatives unlock new, better ways of caring for kids in Colorado and all over the world.

Making groundbreaking discoveries takes years of investment and commitment. This work is expensive, but the results — saving and improving children’s lives — are worth every penny. We couldn’t accomplish all of this without you by our side.

Your support connects you with a passionate community

Your support matters — just read our patient stories to see for yourself.

Many of us have our own story about how Children’s Colorado changed our child’s, grandchild’s or friend’s life. Some of us were even Children’s Colorado patients ourselves. We care about our mission — and about each other — and we want to make your experience here meaningful and rewarding too.
