Inspire hope while you help to raise $175 million by 2015

Create a healthier future for kids

University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital translates breakthrough research into exceptional medical care for children when they need it most. For some families, it's their only hope, because the U offers promising new treatments available nowhere else. Charitable gifts help make that possible.

The U of M Masonic Children's Hospital is Minnesota’s only university-affiliated pediatric hospital engaged in leading research with the potential to radically improve the way we care for critically ill children, providing care in more than 50 specialty areas. The hospital is consistently ranked among the best in Minnesota and the nation by U.S. News & World Report. Here are some other notable features:

  • Level-III neonatal intensive care unit
  • Children’s dialysis center--the only one in Minnesota 
  • Pediatric emergency department, open 24/7
  • Comprehensive mental-health and substance-abuse services center
  • One-of-a-kind playground adapted for hospitalized children

Philanthropic support makes discovery possible

Thanks to charitable gifts like yours, U researchers, doctors, and other caregivers in the hospital and the U's Department of Pediatrics will make it possible for many more children to lead happy, healthy lives. You can inspire hope. Join our campaign to raise $175 million to fund vital advances in children’s health and give today.
