At Lurie Children's, we're passionate about helping every child have a safer, healthier future. Whether it’s in the research lab, in the clinic or out in the community, we put children and their families at the center of everything we do. That’s why Lurie Children’s is ranked the #1 children’s hospital in Illinois by U.S. News & World Report.

Kids need us. We need you.

Every day, kids and families from Chicago and around the world come to Lurie Children’s for care. As a non-profit hospital and one of the top local children’s charities, we depend on the generous support of donors to deliver exceptional, kid-friendly care to every child who needs it.

A gift to Lurie Children’s helps fund services that insurance doesn’t cover and programs that families don’t receive a bill for. Your gift will:

  • Give more kids access to life-changing pediatric care
  • Create kid-friendly spaces and programs specifically developed for children
  • Address the inequitable distribution of health care resources across Chicago
  • Accelerate research into more effective treatments and cures for child diseases
