What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Valley Children's Healthcare Foundation raises needed funds to support Valley Children's Healthcare's treatment of ill and injured kids across our 12-county service area in California's Central Valley. Approximately 13% of the region's 1.3 million children ages 0 to 20 are treated by Valley Children's each for a total of over 350,000 patient visits. The Emergency Department at Valley Children's Hospital in Madera provides care for approximately 120,000 patient visits annually. Valley Children's Healthcare is improving access to pediatric care and seeks to ensure that every child in our service area lives within 30 miles of a Valley Children's Healthcare facility. Valley Children's Healthcare has expanded its network in recent years to offer services in Madera, Fresno, Modesto, Merced, Visalia, and Bakersfield with new facilities planned for Clovis, Fowler, Modesto, and Bakersfield.

Charting impact

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

Valley Children's Healthcare Foundation has three primary goals: (1) raise $16.537 million in philanthropic support in fiscal year 2019 to support the healthcare network; (2) improve access to pediatric healthcare services for Central Valley kids; and (3) increase the total endowment corpus to $30 million by December 31, 2022.

In order to achieve our goal to raise $16.537 million in philanthropic support in FY 2021 to support the healthcare network, we must meet several fundraising targets in order to achieve our total revenue objective:
• Raise $8 million annually through major gifts, planned gifts, and grants.
• Raise $2.75 million annually through events and cause marketing.
• Raise $2.75 million annually through our Children's Miracle Network Hospitals partnership and related programming.
• Raise $3.1 million annually through other annual gift programs.

In order to achieve our goal to improve access to pediatric healthcare services for Central Valley kids, we have three strategies to implement:
• Open new specialty care centers in Madera, Merced, and Visalia by 2024.
• Raise $2 million annually to support new facilities within our service area.
• Continue to raise unrestricted support to assist with the organization's provision of care.

In order to increase the total endowment corpus to $30 million by December 31, 2022, we have two strategies to implement:
• The Guilds of Valley Children's Hospital seeks to raise $1 million annually in endowed funds.
• Valley Children's Healthcare Foundation must raise $1.5 million annually in endowed funds.

We believe that we are capable of raising $16.537 million in philanthropic support annually to support the healthcare network for two primary reasons:
• We have a 16 full-time, professional fundraising staff members dedicated to achievement of this goal with the collective experience necessary to achieve it.
• We have demonstrated a growth trend over the past several years that places us on track to achieve this mark. In FY2013, Valley Children's Healthcare Foundation raised approximately $6.2 million. In FY2020, that figure was $29 million. The conditions are set to perform well in the coming years.
Our capabilities to achieve our goal to improve access to pediatric healthcare services for Central Valley kids by expanding our healthcare network in the Central Valley, specifically in communities along the Highway 99 corridor, include the vision, capital, internal staff, and external partners required. Valley Children's Healthcare has opened a new care centers in Bakersfield, Modesto, and Fowler.
Our capabilities to achieve our third goal, which is to increase the total endowment corpus to $30 million by December 31, 2022, include a dedicated base of volunteer fundraisers among 15 Central Valley Guilds and a Foundation staff committed to raising substantial endowed funds each year.

Goal #1: Raise $16.537 million in philanthropic support in FY2021 to support the healthcare network. The Foundation team was able to attract $12.879 million in philanthropic revenue in FY16, $17.797 million in FY17, $15.259 million in FY18, 24.848 million in FY19, and more than $29 million in FY20. We anticipate achieving the annual goal of $16.537 million in FY21. Our goal is to continue to achieve this level of performance in the future in support of the children we serve.
Goal #2: Improve access to pediatric healthcare services for Central Valley kids.
Goal #3: Increase the total endowment corpus to $30 million by December 31, 2022. The total endowed fund corpus was over $27 million as of December 31, 2020. Through aggressive ongoing fundraising efforts and sound fiscal management, we believe that these endowments can simultaneously contribute to ongoing operations and continue to grow the corpus to support future operations.
