Welcome to the Children's Hospital Association

CHA is a volunteer non-profit organization that raises funds to support programs at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.  CHA has a rich history of facilitating leading edge care for children and helping to establish Children’s as a national leader in pediatric health care. This year CHA pledged $815,000 to Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. This would not be possible without the generosity of our many loyal supporters. Many of the programs and research projects we sponsor are ongoing, and without our funding they could not continue.

How are your dollars making a difference?

This year, CHA pledged $815,000.00 to fund programs and services at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota that are underfunded or not covered by insurance.

Included this year, Midwest Children’s Resource Center (MCRC) has received a grant for $150,000.00. Their expertise and strength in the field of child abuse is known nationally. MCRC recognizes, treats and works with community partners to provide a better life for children who may be a victim of physical and/or sexual abuse. 

Additional programs use funds pledged from CHA to train professionals to see more patients and serve their needs promptly. A pledge of $177,000.00 to the Children’s Hospital Clinic of St. Paul helps to pay for medications for families who are financially fragile.
