    Giving Hope is Cincinnati Children’s community philanthropy program.  It’s a great way to get involved and help us bring hope and healing to kids and families in our community. 

    How Does It Work? 

    As a Giving Hope participant, you will host your own event − a FUNdraiser to support the program of your choice at Cincinnati Children’s. You can do an event at school or work, in your neighborhood, community or online. We can provide the tools and tips to help make your event a success.

  • What You Need to Know

    Show All

    Giving Hope is made up of a group of community members who want to make a difference for the patients and families who turn to Cincinnati Children’s for care. In the past year, more than 200 event organizers have raised more than $1 million to support various programs at the medical center.  Together, we are making an impact and helping to change the outcome for children today and tomorrow. By hosting a Giving Hope event, you can:

    • Honor a courageous child who has been treated by our experts.
    • Help raise awareness about a specific condition or health risk.
    • Support care for those in need throughout our community.
