Giving Tuesday

On #GivingTuesday, you can support the patients and families at Lurie Children’s. Your gift supports families who are underinsured or uninsured, helps create kid-friendly spaces and provide excellent care, brings quality health care into local communities and advances critical research.


What is Giving Tuesday and when is it?

Giving Tuesday is a national campaign occurring on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving. It was established as a way to begin the giving season and encourage people to contribute charitable donations to nonprofits. The next Giving Tuesday is on Nov. 28, 2023. 

What are some Giving Tuesday participation ideas?

  • Donate: Make a donation to celebrate Giving Tuesday and kick off the season of giving. When you give to Lurie Children’s on Giving Tuesday, we use your gift to support families and kids who need it most.

  • Encourage others: Giving Tuesday started as a national movement to inspire giving. After you give, fundraise or volunteer, encourage others to get involved by sharing your participation using #GivingTuesday and tag @luriechildrens to share your support. Together, we can make a big impact!

  • Fundraise: When you ask friends and family to help raise money for a charity, you increase the amount you would've given on your own! You can easily start a fundraiser for Lurie Children’s online and share your fundraising goal with friends and family.

How is my Giving Tuesday donation used at Lurie Children's?

Helping families regardless of their social and economic circumstance has always been at the core of Lurie Children’s mission—but we can’t do it without you. A gift to Lurie Children’s helps fund services that insurance doesn’t cover and programs that families don’t receive a bill for. Pet therapy visits, in-hospital summer camp, travel vouchers and school services as well as research, advocacy and training—are all supported by philanthropic gifts. Your donation this Giving Tuesday will help us deliver exceptional, kid-friendly care to every child who needs it and to build safer spaces where children can grow up and thrive.
