Celebrating Our Donors

Foligno Family
The Foligno Family

Columbus Blue Jackets player Nick Foligno and his wife, Janelle, were thrilled to welcome their first child to the family. Unfortunately, Milana was born with a congenital heart defect and required intensive treatment and surgery. Today, Milana is healthy. The family honored Nationwide Children’s with a donation of $500,000. “How can we help people who are going to be in a similar situation?,” Nick asked the media. “To try and help others is something that’s important to us.”

About the Nationwide Children's Hospital Foundation

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.

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.
