Friends of The Hospital for Sick Children Toronto
Fighting the biggest challenges in children's health. Based in Washington, DC. It received its nonprofit status in 1986.
All of us at SickKids are fighting the same battle: to make every kid a healthy kid.
Our vision is simple: Healthier Children. A Better World.
We believe fighting for the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society.
Right now, quantum advancements in scientific knowledge and technology – made possible by donors like you – present an unprecedented opportunity for SickKids. To be ready for the next round, we need to update our infrastructure so we can unleash the full potential of SickKids expert team.
We need to expand our reach, to extend our excellent standards of care to more children around the world. We need to elevate our research - it’s our best weapon in the fight against disease and congenital childhood conditions. And we must enrich the compassionate care we believe fosters the lifelong well-being of children and their families.
It’s a massive challenge, but one that has to be met. So we’re actively inspiring communities and individuals to take up the fight by investing in our Hospital, its mission, and the health and scientific advances your gifts make possible.
Thanks to our donors, in the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2018, SickKids Foundation invested over $140 million in child health research, learning and care.
We’re winning. Because every day we continue to fight.
To save lives, to find new cures and to provide world-class care. But we are also fighting against the limits of a 70-year-old hospital where parts of the building don’t meet modern building codes. Where our most vulnerable patients are crammed into overcrowded rooms. Where our outdated spaces can’t accommodate the weight of an MRI machine.
That’s where you come in. We need you on our side in the SickKids VS Limits Campaign, the biggest fundraising campaign in Canadian health-care history, to help us build a brand-new hospital.
