Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation
The Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation is a Children’s Foundation initiative that supports the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Funds support numerous programs, research efforts and education. The outcomes are a direct result of the combination of expertise and passion to help children by providing our partners with the resources to support child health advocacy and outreach, pediatric medical research and medical education.
As the largest recipient of the Foundation’s grants, together we set an example of what can be done with a focused commitment to support programs that advance our mission to impact the health and wellness of children and their families.
