The Impact of Your Gift
Because of you, a boy born three months early will get to go home with his mother next week, and a family will be complete.
Because of you, a 12-year-old girl grievously injured in a car accident will go to her senior prom and dance with a very nervous young man.
Because of you, a 6-year-old boy with bone cancer will go fishing with his Dad four summers from now.
All these things and more will happen because you cared enough to make a gift.
Connecticut Children’s delivers cutting-edge treatment to pediatric patients across multiple specialties – but our commitment to the well-being of our patients extends well beyond the bedside. At Connecticut Children’s, we are continually seeking to improve and define the standards of pediatric care, identifying new and better treatments and finding cures for children’s health issues.
Every dollar counts. Your tax-deductible gift to the Greatest Need Children’s Fund allows Connecticut Children’s to treat the routine injuries and illnesses of childhood and keeps us nimble and responsive, so we can address extraordinary needs during uncertain times. For example, during the COVID-19 crisis, the Greatest Need Children’s Fund provides support for the purchase of critical personal protection equipment (PPE), the hardware and technology necessary to increase our telemedicine capabilities and additional common items like hand sanitizer and tympanic thermometers for testing and temperature screening.
Or you can impact a specific care area or provide support to essential programs and services. Your gift can help purchase state-of-the-art equipment and technology, help a family cover costs associated with treatment, or launch the next promising line of research.
Today’s investments will make tomorrow’s care even more exceptional for these patients and help make the children in Connecticut the healthiest in the country.
