Ways to help

To fulfill our vision that Wisconsin's children will be the healthiest in the nation, we need the help of our friends and partners in the community. It is through the generous support of individuals, family foundations, corporations, and others that our exceptional doctors, nurses, and other health care providers throughout the community are able to give kids the best care every day.

Whether offering the best outcomes in the world for the most complex conditions (Herma Heart Institute), guiding new lifesaving research breakthroughs (whole genome sequencing) or delivering quality care to children in at-risk neighborhoods, Children's Wisconsin sets new standards of excellence in pediatric healthcare. Support of our hospital and programs — whether through advocacy, direct donations, event participation, fundraising, or volunteerism — is the investment of a lifetime. When you make that investment, you are supporting critical and preventive care programs that make a difference in the lives of kids and families. Thank you for being an advocate for children.
