We are inspired by our vision if we change the health of children, we will change the health of Canada and know that developing larger, more strategic partnerships is key to significantly expanding fundraising and impact for children’s health in Canada.

Canada’s Children’s Hospital Foundations (CCHF), established in 2017, is a not-for-profit organization that raises funds for a national network of hospital foundations as the largest single, non-government funder of children’s health in Canada. About to embark on a new 3-year strategic plan, CCHF raises over $50 million annually and receives generous support through donors of Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals campaigns, as well as contributions through additional strategic partnerships with other companies and supporters across the country. Together we represent 13 of Canada’s children’s hospitals where the greatest challenges are tackled.

CCHF has been collaboratively developed by its 13 member foundations to respond to the increasing demand of donors wishing to establish national partnerships to have a greater impact on children’s health across the country. Our partners are corporations and organizations doing incredible work in support of local kids’ hospitals. The CCHF team helps increase the impact delivered through these hospitals collectively in a nation-wide story of impact.

CCHF has an annual operating budget of over $5 million, comprised of membership fees paid by the Children’s Hospital Foundations and supplemented by corporate sponsorship and underwriting of CCHF awareness and fundraising properties. Foundation revenues represent current funds raised by CCHF Children’s Miracle Network partners, as well as other national partnerships outside of CMN.



CCHF’s founding members are Canada’s 13 Children’s Hospital Foundations:



Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) raises funds and awareness for 170 member hospitals across North America, 12 of which are in Canada. All contributions raised by companies and their employees in communities across Canada go back to each member foundation to fund critical treatments and healthcare services, pediatric medical equipment, and research. Its various fundraising partners and programs support the non-profits’ mission to do what is right for kids so they will have the healthiest most fulfilling childhood possible.

Each day, over 4,900 children will receive medical treatment for various diseases, sickness, and injuries at member hospitals across Canada. These children’s hospitals depend on financial support so that critical priorities, vital programs, equipment, and research devoted to children’s health continue to thrive.
