Thanks to donors like you, every child gets the life saving care they need at Children’s. But we still need your help to make sure no child ever gets turned away.
Miracle Makers are people who make a financial contribution every month to provide a stable and reliable source of funding to help care for every child who needs treatment.
Children’s National has an active adult volunteer program, and summer opportunities for high school volunteers. It takes only a small amount of time to make a big difference in a child's life.

Whether you make a large or small gift, you can make a difference for a child who is sick or injured. At Children's National, we take extraordinary care to steward our financial resources wisely.
Each year we see approximately 300,000 children, who come from Maryland, Virginia, Washington, DC, and from across the country and around the world. Our nationally recognized physicians and nurses provide the best possible care, and we offer services that support the entire family. Because we are solely focused on children, philanthropy allows us to provide specialized services that are not reimbursed by insurance, such as:
Philanthropy also helps us close the gap between the services we bill and the amount we're able to collect. In fiscal year 2013, Children's National provided nearly $2 billion -- $1,949,162,000 in services for inpatients and outpatients, including physician care, diagnostic and therapeutic procedures, nursing care, and room and board. Because government and other insurance carriers do not pay the total charges for the care delivered, we did not collect $1,067,433,000. In addition, we provided $46,213,000 in uncompensated care, which is possible only because of philanthropy.
