Areas of Support
Children’s Health is a not-for-profit health system that relies on philanthropic support to sustain our mission and provide the wide range of services we offer to our patients and families. The employee giving campaign is an effort led by Children’s Medical Center Foundation, the philanthropic engine of Children’s Health, that gives team members the opportunity to make a personal contribution to the hospital in support of whichever area you choose. Every single dollar the Foundation receives makes a difference.
There are three options to choose from in designating your gift:
- Unrestricted, to support the area of greatest need at Children’s.
Today, Children’s Health is North Texas’s largest pediatric health care provider, serving more than 300,000 children each year with exemplary care in over 50 subspecialties, including oncology, cardiology, nephrology, psychiatry, urology, and sports medicine. Unrestricted philanthropic support allows Children’s Health to fund areas of greatest need and impact, helping us to be nimble in sustaining and enhancing critical programs. Employees can help Children’s Health expand its reach by giving unrestricted philanthropic support, enabling us to fulfill our mission to make life better for children.
- Employee Care Fund, to assist fellow employees in time of great crisis.
The Employee Care Fund is a completely employee-funded program where employees donate funds to provide financial assistance to their coworkers when they or a family member has a serious medical condition or when they’ve had a catastrophic property loss. Regular full- and part-time employees, in good standing, who have worked at Children’s Health at least six months may request assistance from the Employee Care Fund. Team members can give to the Employee Care Fund to assist fellow team members in a time of great crisis.
- Any program or department of your choosing.
In addition to these options, employees can give back to any program or department of their choice. A team member might choose to give to Child Life, where services directly reach approximately 40,000 patients each year through programs including Music Therapy, Therapeutic Arts, Pet Therapy, medically oriented camps, and Teddy Bear Clinics that allow patients to build comfort through playing with medical equipment in a safe, stress-free environment. Since conducting research keeps Children’s Health on the cutting-edge of pediatric medicine and allows our physicians to bring promising new therapies to patients today, you might choose to donate your gifts to Clinical Research. Whether clinical or non-clinical, there’s a long list of options that can choose from to give your support.
Regardless of how you choose to give, know that your generosity will make a meaningful impact.
