Why Your Gift Is Important

Your gift helps Nemours conduct innovative research and provide life-saving care for children. With you, we will continue to discover new cures and comfort families as their child receives treatment. Thanks to philanthropy, Nemours can offer the promise to create the healthiest generations of children.

That’s because, along with world-class research and clinical care, Nemours is unique in providing preventive programs. We educate health professionals and families and bring attention to children’s health issues at the local, state and federal levels — all aimed at helping to ensure the well-being of every child.


How Your Gift Helps Children

Thank you for supporting Nemours Children's Health and for touching the lives of children with your generosity. At Nemours, we treat every child as our own — and transform lives in extraordinary ways. We have made it our mission to pursue life-saving research and provide world-class pediatric care in our hospitals and clinics.

As one of the largest not-for-profit organizations devoted to children’s health, Nemours invests in programs and services that benefit the health and lives of children. No matter how small or large, your gift is vital to our mission of helping and healing children.

Your gifts advance these endeavors:

  • Provide much-needed outpatient psychosocial support for patients in the Nemours Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders
  • Perform an epidemiologic study to determine the frequency of cytomegalovirus, an infection that can cause several serious medical issues, including hearing loss.
  • Helps to fund Angel Eyes, a tool that allows a mother in a separate location to view and talk to their infant in the Nemours Children’s Hospital, Delaware NICU.
  • Celebrate prom, a special event for chronically ill children in our inpatient and outpatient setting who miss the chance to attend prom with their classmates due to their medical condition or treatment.
  • And so much more.

Stock and Mutual Funds

Your gift of stock or appreciated securities can provide much-needed support for patient care, biomedical research or health and education initiatives at Nemours while at the same time providing you with significant tax benefits.
