Caring for kids is what we do. Each year at Kentucky Children’s Hospital, we provide care for more than 120,000 children in our outpatient clinics and more than 6,000 children in the hospital. This includes offering compassionate care to kids of all ages and with all types of needs, from the tiniest patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to our pediatric oncology patients in the DanceBlue Clinic.

We’re committed to offering families in Kentucky exceptional care that’s specially tailored to the unique health needs of kids. The truth is, we can’t do it alone.

You can change the lives of Kentucky’s children by making a financial donation to support our services and research.

Why Your Donation Matters

When it comes to donations to Kentucky Children’s Hospital, no donation is too small or inconsequential. Every gift makes a difference.

Our mission is to provide the best possible outcomes for our young patients, while also supporting their families. To do this, we are continually looking to add new and emerging talent in pediatric specialties and to incorporate the latest advancements and technologies when appropriate.

Donations from our community help make that possible. Your donations help us recruit and retain some of the country’s top doctors and surgeons. They help us provide healthcare in the most underserved areas of the Commonwealth and the surrounding states. They help us purchase the latest equipment and technology. And they help us conduct research into new, innovative therapies and treatment options that can impact children now and in the future.

Your impact can’t be overstated.
