It takes the dedication and passion of many to care for the more than 100,000 children who visit SickKids each year. The strength and support of countless doctors, nurses, volunteers and donors enables SickKids to continually push the frontiers of care, research and learning, and to make a profound difference in the lives of children who need their help.
Philanthropy has an enormous impact at SickKids. Donations fund, among other things:
- major equipment purchases and capital renovations, ensuring that the facilities remain leading edge;
- training programs for SickKids’ health professionals to keep them at the top of their fields;
- the infrastructure for the SickKids Research Institute, allowing their scientists to be at the forefront of their respective fields;
- national and global projects, helping to build capacity across the country and around the world to improve child health.
