Giving to Children’s Minnesota

Your donation, no matter the size, makes a big difference.

Your donation to Children’s Minnesota makes a big difference to the kids we care for. As a nonprofit health system, we rely on the generosity of our many communities across the Midwest region.

Why does a children’s hospital need my donation?

Every child we meet gets the best care, regardless of their ability to pay. Nearly half of our patients rely on Medicaid, which reimburses only 70 cents for every $1 of services. Because of this, Children’s Minnesota makes up the difference.

Thanks to donations we receive, all patients and families have access to the best physicians, treatments and wrap-around services, regardless of their ability to pay for care.

Why donate to Children’s Minnesota?

At Children’s Minnesota, 100% of your donation is spent on the kids and families we serve.

Caring for kids involves more than expert medical care. Whether it’s a child life specialist at the bedside to calm nerves, music therapy to boost mobility or interpreter services for non-English-speaking families, child and family services helps ease the fears, anxiety and stress of being in the hospital. We provide a continuum of support, information, education, comfort and connection to help patients and their families navigate and actively participate in their health care experiences.

This attention to detail, comfort and care is not found at every health care facility. It’s only available at Children’s Minnesota because of generous support from donors. These programs are not reimbursed by insurance and don’t show up on a patient’s bill.

What is Children’s Minnesota doing to advance health care?

With your gift, we can continue to deliver world-class medical care and keep up with the latest innovations. You help us invest in cutting-edge technology, facilities and research, all of which have the power to change — and save kid’s lives.

Research is one of the most important areas of focus for us, and we’re constantly looking for innovations that are completely kid- and family-focused. From improving day-to-day quality of life for children and teens to adopting cutting-edge technologies, we will never stop looking for better ways to serve the most amazing people on Earth.

We’re proud of the recognition we receive for advancing health care. Children’s Minnesota and its staff are regularly awarded for excellence in care, quality, innovation and industry leadership. We are an award-winning health system, regularly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top children’s hospital.
