Your donation to our non-profit institution makes it possible for us to provide exceptional, compassionate care for children. This vital support enables kids to be healthy and fulfill their potential.
Generous philanthropy also advances our work to find new treatments and cures.
Medical developments for children continue to lag significantly behind advancements for adults. We’re closing this gap, through research and innovation, and the development of devices and therapies specific to kids’ growing bodies. Your gift provides hope, healing and brighter futures.
What does my donation support?
Children's National Hospital uses donations to continually improve our world-class care for the whole child — mind, body and spirit. Donations support unreimbursed care for families in our community who cannot afford to pay for it.
Your gift funds research, specialized medical equipment and facilities. It allows us to expand innovative programs, such as Child Life, art, music and pet therapy, our mobile health program and other services that enable children to receive the best care possible.
May I give a general gift or must I designate it to a specific area?
We welcome every gift. Donations that are not designated (unrestricted gifts) are critical to fulfilling our hospital’s mission. Gifts to our Fund for Every Child give us the flexibility to pursue new opportunities to improve care and meet our patients’ most urgent needs. These gifts also support uncompensated care, which is vital for families who lack adequate insurance and face a variety of challenges that influence their health and well-being.
Yes. Donating securities helps kids and families at Children’s National and provides you with tax benefits. When you give appreciated stocks, you may receive a charitable income tax deduction for the full market value and avoid capital gains tax.
How do I give through my Donor Advised Fund (DAF)?
Create a Donor Advised Fund (DAF) and name Children’s National as a recipient. You receive an immediate tax deduction when you contribute to your DAF. Then, grants can are made to Children’s National over time, providing critical funds to help kids be kids while they’re in the hospital.
