Your fundraising supports four key areas essential to children's health.  
 
  • Innovative Technology: From newborn heart surgery to playtime during chemotherapy, you can help acquire life-changing equipment that gives children better opportunities to heal and play.
  • Groundbreaking Research: Gifts not only impact the health of current patients, but also make better treatments possible for future generations as well.
  • Leadership and Education: Community support helps our team be at their best as they treat our children
  • Patient and Family Centered Care: Your support helps us integrate tools and strategic care that soothes and empowers parents, siblings and other loved ones as they experience the healing journey together.


Projects supported by philanthropy:

Music therapy expansion: Music therapy, which can be life-changing for a child struggling with treatment, is not covered by insurance.  Thanks to community support, we were able to expand music therapy to every inpatient area of the hospital and provide over 2,500 music therapy sessions in 2018.

Club Sib: Hospitalization affects the entire family, and siblings often spend long hours inside with little to do but worry about their brother or sister.  To offer them a space of their own, we launched "Club Sib" last year. "Club Sib" meets weekly, providing siblings with a special opportunity to play together and understand that they are not alone.

One Wish Grants: Through One Wish Grants, the CHOC Foundation connects community support with CHOC associates' most innovative ideas.  Donations help fund projects like our culinary medicine program, the creation of a youth mental health video series and the integration of virtual reality into pediatric care.

The Thompson Autism Center: Bill and Nancy Thompson have inspired our CHOC family to invest in establishing the Thompson Autism Center at CHOC Children's.  Set to open in early 2020, the center will partner with other organizations to offer families essential services for autism spectrum disorder and diagnosis, treatment and long-term support.
