CHILDREN'S MIRACLE NETWORK HOSPITALS raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada, helping make sure every child receives the best possible care. We let our member hospitals decide how to use these funds, ensuring the most urgent needs are met, but we have our sights set even higher because we know that when we improve treatments and facilities, we can address the most challenging health issues of today while preventing and preparing for those to come. When we fund pioneering research, we transform how we care for children not just in their youth, but throughout their lives. When we make it easy and exciting for people to support local hospitals, our impact grows exponentially.
