Patient Families

Connecticut Children’s Medical Center Foundation relies on patient families to support our efforts in raising awareness for Connecticut Children’s 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 patients to get involved. Patients, their siblings and their caregivers are invited to participate in a variety of fun activities throughout the year, including baseball games, dance marathons, road races, car shows, and more, at no cost to patient families. In addition, caregivers are invited to share stories of their experiences at Connecticut Children’s, if that is of interest. To get involved, please share your story with us and a foundation representative will be in contact with you.



Each year Connecticut Children’s 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 2019-2020 school year, Connecticut Children’s will award $56,000 to students pursuing post-secondary education.
