We can do so much, together

An independent and not-for-profit system since 1924, Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota needs your help to pay for all the vital things we do for children. With your contributions, we can:

  • Support groundbreaking clinical programs specifically designed especially for kids
  • Cover the costs for families who can’t afford medical care for their children
  • Train the next generation of pediatricians and other pediatric health professionals
  • Pay for important care programs that are not covered by insurance, such as child life, music therapy and social work
  • Research new healthcare ideas that save lives and make the children in our care more comfortable
  • Provide translators for non-English speaking families
  • Fund initiatives that keep kids throughout our community healthy and safe

We’ve already accomplished a lot

With help from people like you, Children’s has become:

  • One of the largest pediatric health systems in the United States—with two hospitals, 12 primary and specialty care clinics and six rehabilitation sites
  • The only health system in Minnesota to provide care exclusively to children from before birth through young adulthood
  • An award-winning health system, regularly ranked by U.S. News & World Report as a top children’s hospital
