Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation relies on patient families to support our efforts in raising awareness for the Medical Center by inspiring the community through their involvement in events and special programs.
Patient Family Program
There are many opportunities throughout the year for Connecticut Children’s Medical Center patients to get involved. From signature events like Concorso Ferrari and Friends and our Miracle Network Dance Marathons, to photo shoots and fun activities offered in the Family Resource Center or becoming a social media ambassador. Parents are also encouraged to get involved by volunteering for one of the various committee opportunities that exist in the Medical Center and Foundation – there’s something for everyone. To get involved, please share your story with us and a foundation representative will be in contact with you.
Each year Connecticut Children’s Medical Center awards thousands of dollars in scholarships to outstanding students who are connected to the Medical Center. Scholarship information and application forms are available below.
For the 2016-2017 school year underway, Connecticut Children’s has awarded $42,500 to students pursuing post-secondary education.
Family ambassadors play a special role supporting Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation. Each year a special group of ambassadors are nominated to represent the Foundation in order to offer this opportunity to as many children as possible. Ambassadors must be referred by a care provider to be considered for the program. This is a great way to share your story and encourage donors by ensuring them that their support is making a difference for families throughout the region.

- Guest of honor at signature events
