In 1892, a group of citizens held a sale to raise money for the care of sick, impoverished children. That effort led to the opening of Nationwide Children’s Hospital in 1894. For more than a century, we have existed to care for every child, for every reason.
The Foundation is the fundraising arm of Nationwide Children’s. Our job – with your help – is to ensure much needed funds are available for innovative research, emerging trends in pediatric health, and to react to our ever changing world. Philanthropy ensures that we can dream big. That we can dream – and ultimately achieve – a better day for children with cancer, heart defects, autism, behavioral health conditions, and other medical issues that affect their lives.
Over 100 years… That is how long charity, donations, and generosity have enabled us to help children. With your help, we can add another century to our distinguished history.
