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:

  • music and arts programs
  • special performances
  • counseling
  • specialized equipment like a child-friendly MRI machine that looks like a submarine!

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.

Children's National Health System has more than 50 pediatric subspecialties and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your contribution is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law. No goods or services were provided in exchange for your generous donation.
