Why Financial Gifts are Needed

Your gifts support needed services at UNC Children's.N.C. Children’s Hospital prides itself on its commitment to providing the highest quality care to its patients from all 100 counties in North Carolina, regardless of a family's ability to afford the services.

Unfortunately, health care is expensive. It is especially costly to deliver the kind of programs and services children with complex medical problems need to grow to adulthood.

But that's why we're here. Our medical specialists provide lifesaving measures, some might even say miracles, to children of all ages, from the tiniest of infants to the young adult.

Our charge at UNC is to provide the best care possible, lead cutting-edge research and offer premiere medical educational programs. Our challenge is providing more than what's afforded from patients' limited insurance and uncompensated care to children statewide.

And that's where you come in. Simply stated, much of the additional personnel and equipment we need to develop new and innovative programs cannot be funded with clinical revenues. Instead, we must seek funds from donors, grants and other means.

Through your support of N.C. Children's Hospital, you can be a champion of children, helping us care for patients and their families, paving the way to that next big medical discovery, be it a better treatment or a cure, and educating the next generation of leading pediatric doctors and nurses.
