What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Children’s healthcare is underfunded. Insurance and government programs do not come close to covering the full cost of caring for kids, so children’s hospitals rely on donations to make up that funding gap. That’s where Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals comes in. Through national fundraising programs and partnerships with close to 100 corporate brands, the organization rallies communities to raise funds for local children’s hospitals. In 2018, more than $409 million was donated to 170 children’s hospitals across North America, funding charitable care, treatments, equipment, and research.

Children's Health Care Programs

Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is a non-profit organization dedicated to saving and improving the lives of children by raising funds for children's hospitals across North America. Each year the 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals provide the finest medical care, life-saving research and preventative education to help millions of kids overcome diseases and injuries of every kind. Headquartered in Salt Lake City, Utah, Children's Miracle Network has grown dramatically since its founding in 1983, from a televised fund raiser in a small studio to one of the world's leading children's charities helping more than 10 million kids each year. The 170 Children's Miracle Network hospitals are there 24 hours a day to help kids of every age and background overcome every imaginable disease and injury-from asthma and broken bones to cancer, heart defects, pediatric AIDS, muscular dystrophy and serious injuries. These children's hospitals are also on the front lines of preventing disease and injury through research, education and outreach programs that keep millions of kids out of the hospital each year. Thousands of special events and grassroots fund raisers are conducted year-round through the network of children's hospitals, media partners and corporate volunteers working together to ensure healthy kids in their communities. In addition to "Children's Hospital Week," Live-athon from Orlando, Florida, corporate sponsors sell paper Miracle Balloons, radio stations broadcast Radiothons, and college students hold Dance Marathons-just a few of the programs generating millions of dollars each year to provide the life-saving care and crucial services kids need. And the need is truly great. This year alone Children's Miracle Network hospitals will provide charity care worth billions, yet these children's hospitals depend on community support to help fund their vital services. Through its year-round efforts to help kids, Children's Miracle Network has raised more than $6 billion to date, most of which is donated a dollar or two at a time by caring individuals across North America.

Charting impact

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals’ goal is to ensure local children’s hospitals are fully funded so that all kids have the care they deserve. In turn, their families and communities are healthier.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has two complementary strategies: raising awareness among the general public about the philanthropic needs of children’s hospitals and raising funds for local children’s hospitals through programs and brand partnerships.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has developed fundraising programs that engage brands’ employees and communities (including gamers and college students) around the cause of local children’s hospitals. This, married with a content marketing strategy that focusing on storytelling and reaching target audiences, has made Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals a leader in partnering with corporate brands to meet their social responsibility goals while making a vital impact on local communities. Member hospitals are fully engaged, supporting fundraising efforts in their communities.

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals measures its impact by dollars raised, as well as charitable belief and donor intent.

Since 1983, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals has raised more than $7 billion for children’s hospitals across North America — increasing its fundraising each year and supporting 170 children’s hospitals in 2019. Charitable belief and donor intent for children’s hospitals are at an all-time high: 54 percent and 29 percent, respectively, according to brand research commissioned by Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in 2019. Looking ahead: The needs of children’s hospitals continue to far outweigh the dollars raised. To raise more funds for local children’s hospitals, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is seeking to elevate its vision and more broadly identify its social impact.
