Our largest auxiliary, Kindervelt is recognized as one of Greater Cincinnati’s outstanding volunteer organizations. Kindervelt has more than 600 members in groups around the region, linked by a citywide board of trustees. Its members “have fun while raising funds” to help the patients of Cincinnati Children’s. Since its inception in 1971, Kindervelt has provided nearly $20 million in support of initiatives and programs that affect the lives of thousands of children. Previous gifts have supported programs in critical care, trauma, asthma and adolescent medicine and have provided the foundation for the development of major medical breakthroughs and state-of-the-art care.
Kindervelt hosts three city-wide fundraisers each year: Kindervelt Gala, Kindervelt Krafts and Let the Good Times Bowl. For more information about these events or to donate, visit the Kindervelt website.

From 2016-2020, Kindervelt proudly championed the mental health needs of our community by alleviating existing challenges for children with psychiatric emergencies. The Kindervelt Psychiatric Emergency Assessment Center (KV PEACe) will provide designated space and resources within the emergency department, intended to improve the comprehensive assessment, care and support of our mental health patients during emergency situations.
Our first auxiliary, the Co-operative Society, has served Cincinnati Children’s for more than 130 years. They have given more than $13 million to various programs at the medical center, including the Mayerson Center for Safe and Healthy Children, the International Adoption Center and our Pediatric Primary Care Clinics. Additionally, members give generously of their time. They volunteer in an on-site sewing room where dedicated stitchers create children’s clothing, blankets and quilts for beds and cribs, toys for use by the Division of Child Life, soft helmets for patients with neurological disorders and teaching tools used by the nursing staff. They also brighten the medical center by decorating lobbies and public spaces for the holidays.

Established in 1910, the Junior Co-Operative Society members volunteer in two gift shops, located at the main hospital and the Liberty Campus. The volunteers are fond of saying, “The more you shop, the more we give.” All proceeds from the gift shop are donated to the medical center.
Years of proceeds have enabled the Junior Co-Operative Society to donate nearly $10 million to Cincinnati Children’s. Their funds have supported important endeavors such as the new Critical Care Building, Cincinnati Children’s Heart Institute’s 3D heart modeling, brain injury rehabilitation equipment and research for liver conditions such as biliary atresia.
Contact Kathy Cassady, president, at 513-636-4310.

In 1964, the Association of Volunteers was organized to provide a coordinated volunteer force to raise funds and provide tender loving care for the patients of Convalescent Hospital for Children.
The Convalescent Hospital serves children with chronic conditions requiring long-term hospital care. Convalescent Hospital joined Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center in 1973, and today houses four specialized services:
The Association of Volunteers committed $360,000 over three years to purchase a robotic device that helps children regain the use of their legs. They have also helped to fund Project SEARCH, providing supportive employment for people with significant disabilities. Funds raised by the group are currently supporting the Be Well Running Program in the Division of Occupational and Physical Therapy at Cincinnati Children’s.
After 50 years as the Cincinnati Antiques Festival, this event has reached a new era of style. Design Cincinnati features celebrity designers for a one-day celebration of interior design and home décor to raise funds.
