Holiday Giving & Donations
As a non-profit hospital, we depend on the kindness of our friends and donors to make the holidays happier for patients and families spending time at Lurie Children’s. You can bring hope and joy to kids by making a donation or starting a fundraiser, purchasing an item from our virtual wish list, or donating toys and gifts.
Thank you for your generosity this holiday season!
Make a Donation with Double the Impact
A gift from you this holiday season means a healthier future for the kids we serve. This year, an anonymous donor will match every gift to our holiday campaign-- that means one gift will have twice the impact! Give double the joy this year!
Start a Virtual Toy Drive Fundraiser
Starting a virtual toy drive fundraiser is a great way to bring joy to families spending long days at Lurie Children's. When you host a virtual toy drive, your friends and family can make a monetary donation to your online fundraising page instead of donating a physical toy. Virtual Toy Drives support our Department of Family Services, the team who is working to make the experience less stressful for grown-ups and less scary for sick children.
Support Families Waiting for Emergency Care
Make a gift today to support kids and families spending long hours in the Emergency Department at Lurie Children's. The holidays bring an increase in accidents, illnesses and injuries and put additional stress on an already full Emergency Department. Your gift today will help us purchase distraction items like toys and books for kids, and gift cards for families to relieve the financial burden of lengthy visits. Your gift also supports our Family Services team members who work around the clock with families to address their emotional, spiritual and physical needs.
Tune In to Lurie Children's Radiothon
Lurie Children’s Radiothon is a live holiday broadcast to raise funds in support of the patients at families at Lurie Children’s. Tune in to any iHeart Chicago station on December 8 to hear stories of breakthroughs and bravery. All funds raised through Radiothon help fuel research, support families in need and provide lifesaving care to more kids.
Donate Toys & Gifts
Receiving age-appropriate toys allows us to create a better and brighter healing environment for our patients. If you would like to make a donation, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
