Akron Children’s is fortunate to have the support of many individuals , each connected through their support for the children and families of our community. In fact, they are people like you, whose time, talent and resources further our mission.

Annual Fund

Every year, supporters of the hospital rally to ensure that the hospital will be able to fulfill its promise to the community. Annual donations are vital to support the services we offer to the children in our community. Help us reach new heights for the thousands of children who place their health and future in our hands. 

Grateful Patient and Family Program

At Akron Children’s, leading-edge care and compassion go hand-in hand. Our patients often express their gratitude for the excellent care they receive in a variety of ways - through their kind words, smiles, letters of thanks and financial support.

The Grateful Patient and Family Program provides our patient families an opportunity to say “thank you” in a special way to the doctors, nurses and healthcare professionals who made a difference to you or a loved one. The doctor, nurse or medical professional who is being honored by your gift will be notified of your thoughtfulness. Say thank you for the care you or your loved one received. 

Memorial and Tribute Gifts

We are honored when people make donations to Akron Children's in honor or memory of someone special.
