Kentucky Children’s Hospital Philanthropy

How you can help

Our community has risen to the occasion in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people have reached out to us asking how they can thank our staff who are on the front lines. We are grateful for this compassion and kindness.

The power of caring

doctor with young patient

At Kentucky Children’s Hospital, caring for kids is what we do. Each year, we care for more than 120,000 children in our outpatient clinics and more than 6,000 children in the hospital – from the tiniest patients in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit to our pediatric oncology patients in the DanceBlue Clinic.

But we can’t do it alone. You can change the lives of Kentucky’s children by helping us provide them with the best medical care and groundbreaking research to find the latest cures.

We can do this together

You have many opportunities to support the Commonwealth’s youngest patients. Together, we can make a difference for the children of Kentucky.
