At Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation, our mission is to support Connecticut Children’s. By bringing together patient families, donors, community members, philanthropic partners and others to raise the financial resources needed to invest in people, research, technology and state-of-the-art equipment, we can support Connecticut Children’s in providing the care our children need and deserve.
Each year, more than 114,000 children receive care made possible by contributions to the Greatest Need Children's Fund.
Patients in need of critical-care were transported to Connecticut Children's from regional hospitals. Of that, more than 300 were NICU babies.
Patient visits to the emergency department, which equate to 164 per day. No one is turned away due to an inability to pay.
QTHON is a year-long fundraising enterprise led by Quinnipiac University students, which culminates in a 10-hour dance marathon to raise funds and awareness in support of Connecticut Children’s.

In 2019, over 1,700 dancers raised more than $332,000. This brings the students’ eight-year cumulative giving total to more than $1 million. QTHON strives to bring together the student body and the local community to raise funds in support of valuable care that patients and their families receive at Connecticut Children’s.
In addition to the Quinnipiac students, patient families from Connecticut Children’s will attend the event and will dance the night away. They are matched with student groups and are able to dance, play games, participate in arts and crafts, and much more.

For our daughter Em, feeding issues and limited language were a daily struggle. We had so many questions about her future, with no real answers. But when we met speech language pathologist, Kelly Mabry, PhD, at Connecticut Children’s, everything changed for our family.
