We’re all fighting the same battle: to make every kid a healthy kid
For children and families in medical crisis, we’re a beacon of hope. Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and is the largest charitable funder of child health research, learning and care in Canada. Thanks to our donors, last year, SickKids Foundation raised more than $140 million for child health research, learning and care. We’re winning. But our fight is not over.
We’re calling on donors to support SickKids by joining our historic campaign to raise $1.3 billion and overcome the limits in three priority areas:
Reimagining our campus
We’re undertaking a near-total rebuild of our aging hospital, so that we’re no longer limited by old spaces, equipment and models of care.
Continuing breakthrough research
We’re ramping up support for our scientists by investing in research leadership, clinical trials and discovery science—the ideas that will deliver tomorrow’s breakthroughs.
Partnering for better care
We’re working with healthcare partners across Canada and around the world to build expertise here and abroad, because we believe that where you live shouldn’t determine if you live.
Help us win the fight
Together, let’s lift paediatric healthcare to new heights.
