How do I get involved?
Individuals and businesses can contribute to Children’s Hospital Foundation by making a donation, participating in one of our events, or creating a fundraising project. Donating unrestricted funds to the hospital is the most impactful way you can help. General donations fund clinical programs, program development and enhancement, recruitment of the very best pediatric specialists, research, or wherever the greatest need exists. No matter how you choose to help, all funds go directly to our region’s only full-service children’s hospital—Children’s Hospital of Richmond at VCU.
Make a Donation
Cash donations are the most effective way you can support our work. Since 2010, Children’s Hospital Foundation has paid and/or pledged over $74 million to Children's Hospital of Richmond at VCU thanks to the support of thousands of members of our community.
