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.

Since becoming a Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals partner in 1991, Ace Hardware has raised more than $100 million for local Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals across the country. This success stems from the creative fundraising efforts of the Ace Hardware Foundation and the generous contributions of Ace retailers, customers, vendor partners and team members.
