Types of Gifts

Make a one-time gift by check or credit card, a monthly recurring gift or a memorial or tribute to a loved one. Or consider gift planning, stocks and other securities. You may also shop to give at our Cincinnati Children's Gift Shop.

Making a cash gift by check or credit card benefits the children and families of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center immediately. In addition, these gifts qualify for federal tax deductions. For tax purposes, a gift of cash is considered to be made on the date it is postmarked, submitted online or hand-delivered. You can mail your gift to: 

Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center
P.O. Box 5202
Cincinnati, OH 45201-5202

Making a gift of securities (.pdf) offers you the chance to help our organization while realizing benefits for yourself. Our online guide will help you determine whether a gift of stock is right for you and show you how to complete your gift. Also, read a case study of one family and see action items.

When you make a transformational gift, you are committing to change the outcome for children in our community and around the world. Maybe you want to support research to find a cure for cancer. Perhaps you will fund the renovation of a clinical space that has exceeded capacity. Or maybe you will help children who desperately need care that their family can’t afford.  

Whatever your passion in pediatric health, you will find it – and be able to support it – at Cincinnati Children’s.

Recognize special people in your life with a memorial or tribute gift to Cincinnati Children’s. It’s a great way to honor your loved one and help sick children at the same time. Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center will acknowledge your memorial or tribute gift by sending an appropriate note to the family or friend in whose name the gift was made. Learn more about memorial or tribute gifts.
We offer you an online guide to plan your charitable giving. You'll find a “Build Your Gift” planner and information about requesting electronic brochures regarding planned giving and estate giving. You may also read information about how to name us as a beneficiary, or how to make a gift through your will or trust.

Corporate gifts play an important role in supporting the care we provide to thousands of children and families each year. A philanthropic partnership with Cincinnati Children's provides businesses with the opportunity to support research, clinical care, charitable or community services or other programs and initiatives at the hospital that showcase the company's commitment to improving the health and welfare of children.

Many companies offer a matching gift program to their employees, employees’ spouses or retirees. Through these programs, a company will match charitable contributions made by their employees to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, a nonprofit organization.

Matching gift programs are a tremendous opportunity to double, or even triple, the impact of your gift!

For example, a donor who works for a company with a matching gift program decides to make a $100 gift to Cincinnati Children’s. The donor’s company will match the $100 gift to the medical center, for a total of $200.

Find out if your company has a matching gift program. Once you’ve found your employer, click on company name to be directed to a matching gift form or further instructions from the company.
