Children's Miracle Network Hospitals
More than 10 million sick and injured kids enter a children’s hospital across North America every year. To provide the best care for kids, children’s hospitals rely on donations and community support, as Medicaid and insurance programs do not fully cover the cost of care.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals’® mission is to save and improve the lives of local kids and, alongside its various partners and programs, has helped fill funding gaps by raising more than $5 billion since 1983, most of it $1 at a time. 100% of funds raised stay local in the communities they were raised in, helping kids treated at 170 local CMN Hospitals across North America.
