At UVA Children's, We Deliver Compassionate, Informed, and Effective Aare to Our Most Precious Resource—Our Kids.

Imagine a world without cancerUVA researchers and doctors have decades of experience studying and successfully treating complex medical issues like pediatric cancers, heart transplants, and babies born prematurely. Supporting a suffering child is tough on loved ones, which is why we prioritize family-centered care in all that we do. Private and community philanthropy helps make all of this possible.

UVA Children's supporters champion the lives of children every day. Along with supporting the needs of patients and their families, the gifts of UVA Children's Champions provide seed funding for essential research in childhood diseases—research that is taking place right here at UVA.


UVA's Children's faculty train and mentor medical and nursing students, as well as young doctors specializing in pediatrics. Philanthropy is a critical component of medical education.


UVA's Child Health Research Center brings together scientists and clinicians to uncover the causes of childhood diseases and to pioneer new treatments, personalized therapies, and cures. Your support makes fundamental discoveries possible.

Patient Care

Patient-centered funds help meet the immediate needs of logistical challenges of having a child in the hospital. From food vouchers and gas cards to toys and games, these funds aid families in their time of need.

By creating a giving page or hosting an event, you can raise unrestricted funds that help UVA Children’s meet unexpected challenges or answer exciting opportunities as they arise. Or, you may designate your support to a program or project that is close to your heart.
