Our Community Cares

Nationwide Children’s Hospital was founded by volunteers who believed that every child deserves the best care possible.  This community built our foundation and helped us thrive with their precious gifts of time, money, and talent.

Today, our community continues its investment in the hospital through individuals or community groups who choose Nationwide Children’s Hospital as the beneficiary of their independent community fundraising promotions and events.  The work of Nationwide Children’s would not be possible without this valuable support. 

Last year, groups like those below raised over $200,000 to support vital programs and services at Nationwide Children’s.  If you or your community group would like to support Nationwide Children’s through an event or promotion, please contact Morgen Spon at (614) 355-5419 or visit Plan An Event.  For upcoming events, please visit our Events Calendar.
