Letter from the President
Together we make a great team! We stay focused on children and on moving things forward to create brighter futures—for kids in our region and beyond.
In this special year-in-review edition of For the Children, you’ll read about how you and other generous donors fuel our work.
We’ll introduce you to a longstanding group of supporters who help us advance care and change the lives of children with special needs. You’ll also learn about a family who is accelerating our pioneering vaccine research — work that may one day protect communities across the globe from deadly infectious diseases. And you’ll meet two incredible 5-year-old philanthropists whose neighborhood lemonade stand helped raise awareness — and vital funding — to help us uncover new cures for people needing organ transplants.
And this is just a small portion of what we accomplished together this past year! For your ongoing support and partnership, we offer you our heartfelt thanks. Being a part of this mission is both a privilege and a responsibility. We deeply appreciate all that you do to help us improve the health and lives of children.
With much gratitude,
President and Chief Executive Officer
Chair, Board of Trustees
