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 $610,000 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.
