According to Children’s Medical Center Foundation President Brent Christopher,
For more than 100 years, Children’s Health has earned the trust and support of our North Texas community by providing the highest possible care, researching life-saving cures and being a champion for community-wide health and wellness. As a nonprofit pediatric health care system, generous gifts and funding from philanthropic partners make it possible for us to do what we do best.
As the fundraising arm for Children’s Health, the Children’s Medical Center Foundation raises funds for programs and initiatives throughout the Children’s Health system, and for those that benefit the pediatric community at large. Philanthropic support can help cover what insurance reimbursement does not and extends our ability to invest in infrastructure, technology, research, protective equipment, supportive programs and other expenses that further our mission to make life better for children.
Our Foundation continues to align donor interests and passions with specialty programs across the health system, including mental health-related initiatives, the Pauline Allen Gill Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders, patient and family support services like child life, social work and pastoral care, and community-serving programs like injury prevention, Children’s Health School-Based Telehealth, and helping families enroll in Medicaid and CHIP.
Generous gifts to Children’s Medical Center Foundation also help to fund lifesaving research, the discovery of cures and new innovative treatments for the future. More than 90 scientists at the Children’s Medical Center Research Institute at UT Southwestern Medical Center are expanding the frontiers of medical knowledge as they continue to make early breakthroughs and promising discoveries in medicine.
Like many of our fellow nonprofits in North Texas, the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically impacted our ability to raise necessary funds. And even though our iconic fundraising events have been put on hold to ensure our community remains safe during these unprecedented times, children will continue to rely on our world-class treatments and care, every day.
We are proud to serve children and families across North Texas and extend our sincerest gratitude for your support.
