Our Mission

The mission of the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Foundation is to make kids better today and healthier tomorrow through the philanthropic support of individual donors, charitable foundations and corporations.

Every day, lifesaving work happens at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta—from pediatric cancer treatments and organ transplants to fracture care and appendectomies.

The Children’s Foundation relies on volunteers in the hospitals and in the community. Each year, in-hospital volunteers donate more than 127,000 hours of their time and community volunteer groups raise millions for Children’s through fundraising activities and events.

As a not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing high-quality pediatric care to the kids in our community, we depend on the generous support of donors to help uphold our mission and perform the work we do each day. We are grateful to all of our donors for their support.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta is a 501(c)(3) organization, gifts to which may be deductible as charitable contributions for federal income tax purposes.
