Honor a Caregiver with our Grateful Family Program

Every day, more than one million times every year, parents from across the country come through our doors and ask us to cure, to mend, to comfort, to save the one thing they treasure most: their child.

You are amongst those one million. You have experienced this magical place. With animal friends and magic forests. This is a place of hope, healing and miracles. This is Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

Each one of us, from doctors to nurses, nutrition services to pastoral care, is committed to you and your family. Because we know when your child needs a hospital, everything matters.


A life-saving surgery. A clean room. A meal you ordered. Every detail matters to us. Because every detail matters to you. We invite you to thank and honor those who helped bring you comfort, ease your fears and help your child. A thank you note and a gift to honor this person will make a difference in their life. Just as they have in yours.

Funding everything from art therapists to chemotherapy treatments to cutting-edge research. Every day the need grows. More patients like the special one in your life need our help, need more cures to be discovered. Your gift and gratitude make all this possible.

Our Promise

The caregiver(s) you chose to honor will be notified that a gift has been made in his/her honor and we will share your thank you note. We will not share the amount of your generous, tax deductible gift.

We made a promise to you and your children. That no child need ever leave central Ohio for world-class medical care. Every gift matters and helps us keep that promise.

Make A Gift
Yes, I want to Honor a Caregiver and help Nationwide Children’s be the very best for every child.

Reasons to Give

“Nationwide Children's Hospital has not only saved our daughter's life, but they have also given us hope - hope of a long, happy, life with Taylor. Instead of being fearful of what may or may not happen with Taylor's disease, we are able to feel confident that the doctors at Nationwide Children's are providing our daughter with the very best of care available.” - Shannon and Jeff Rockwell, parents of Taylor

“The people here at Nationwide Children’s take really good care of me and we like them. When I grow up I want to be the doctor who helps kids like me and that’s a Pulmonologist. I want to help keep kids out of the hospital because of Asthma so we can the take bike rides too.” - Isaiah Burns, Severe Asthma patient

“Our son, Cayson, was born just over three months early in our hometown of Charleston, West Virginia, and was transferred to Nationwide Children’s. Cayson was very sick and it was a scary moment for us. But we knew we were in the right place at Nationwide Children’s.” - Robin Menninger, Cayson’s mother.
