Children’s relies on our volunteers to help us successfully host our annual Signature Events that raise more than $4 million to support our mission. With a variety of events — from 5K runs to galas — we offer volunteers several ways to get involved.
At Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota, we don’t just care for children, we care for the most amazing people on earth. However, many of the things that make Children’s special are only possible because of contributions from people like you. For example, your contributions help cover the costs for those who otherwise can’t afford medical care for their children. Or pay for the unique aspects of care that are not covered by insurance — like language interpreters for families who have limited English proficiency or art therapy. Learn more about how you can help through the following options.
For almost 100 years, people like you have been supporting our mission of “providing the highest-quality, family-centered care, advanced through research and education.” And, we’re just getting started. With your help, we can continue to improve and reimagine healthcare. We can continue to find better ways to care for the most amazing people on earth.

If you’re here, you know what we know: children are the most amazing people on earth. Whether you’re looking in your own child’s eyes or talking to a patient at one of our hospitals, it changes you forever. Kids inspire you to take action. To strive to be worthy of them. To try to be more like they are.
