As a non-profit organization, we depend on the generosity of donors to remain one of the nation’s leading pediatric hospitals. Your gift makes a difference. Whether you’re making a financial donation or offering a gift-in-kind, know that you are helping to make a child’s stay at Phoenix Children's more comfortable.

Donate Money

Every contribution — no matter the size — makes a big impact on our patients. Donations from caring people like you make it possible for us to offer the very best medical specialists, cutting-edge technology and family-centered services without regard to a family's ability to pay. Thank you for investing in the work we do at Phoenix Children's to save lives and bring hope to children and their families. Your support means everything.


A gift in your will, trust or by beneficiary designation can change the future for a child.

A growing community of Phoenix Children’s supporters have made the deeply meaningful decision to include a gift in their will or trust, or to name Phoenix Children’s as the beneficiary of their IRA, other retirement plan, life insurance or other financial account.

With a gift in your will or other estate plan:

  • You can leave most of your resources to your loved ones and reserve a small percentage for Phoenix Children’s.
  • A gift in your will or by beneficiary designation requires no immediate donation. The gift comes to Phoenix Children’s only after your lifetime.
  • You can change your mind at any time.

We welcome gifts in any amount. Because the value is in what these gifts represent-a healthy future for every child.

We encourage you to discuss the best plans for your situation by visiting with your professional advisor.

For assistance in crafting your personal legacy, for more information, or to notify us that you have left a gift to Phoenix Children’s Hospital in your will or other estate plan. please contact us:

Donate Items

We are so grateful to the community for their support. You can drop off your donation at the hospital or donate online. Per infection control policy, all donations must be store-bought, new, and sealed in the original packaging. You can donate online by choosing items through one of our registries from Amazon or Target below, or shop your favorite store or grocery and drop off the items. Of course, you can always choose to make a financial donation.

Gift donations are mostly toys, books, and other items the Child Life Department has determined to be most in need, based on surveys of patients and families. Take a look at some of the ways toys benefit patients at Phoenix Children's by watching this two minute video

Care Cart donations are mostly travel size toiletries and personal items to help families with essential comfort items for an unexpected or extended stay in the hospital with their child. 

Coffee Cart donations are individual-sized, individually-wrapped treats that are distributed at no charge on the volunteer Coffee Cart along with coffee and tea throughout the hospital. Store-bought individually-wrapped cookies are always a favorite.

Host a community event

The beauty of hosting a fundraising event for Phoenix Children's is it allows you to engage family and friends to support a cause you're passionate about. A few ideas include: golf tournaments, car shows, 5K runs/walks. Any of these will provide vital funds to help us give the highest quality of care to patients and their families. To get started, please complete the Special Event Application and accept the Special Event Policies and Procedures of the application.

Start your own fundraising drive and enlist your friends and family to help better the lives of patients at Phoenix Children’s.

How do I start?

It's easy. To create a fundraising project, simply submit your project info. Follow the instructions and fill in all of the fields. Then click the 'Save' button at the bottom. That's it!

What happens once my project is started?

Once the project has been created, we'll do a quick check to see if your project has all the details supporters and contributors will need to know.

What types of projects are accepted?

Fundraising projects can vary greatly. Be creative! Consider pointing friends to your fundraising drive in lieu of birthday or wedding gifts. Ask friends to sponsor your progress at an athletic event. Raise funding for a Hospital program that's close to your heart. However, any forms of illegal content will not be accepted.

How much does it cost create a fundraising page?

We only charge you when you run a successful project, meaning it's free to fail. We will keep 5% of the funds you collect if your project is successful. In addition, PayPal may charge a commission of 3-4% when we transfer funds.

How do I promote a fundraiser?

We've included sharing tools such as Facebook, Twitter and email, which you can find on the project page. These tools are just to get you started. Let your imagination run wild! Spread the word on your blog or your personal website; talk to friends at parties; chat up your neighbors or people at your local grocery store. Any ways you can think of to spread the word, go for it!

How does Phoenix Children's receive funds from my project?

When your project successfully reaches its deadline, the funds will automatically be transferred to Phoenix Children's to help support our life-saving programs.

My project reached its financing goal. What happens now?

That's great news! As long as the project has not reached its deadline, contributors are still able to participate and contribute (again). When your project reaches its financing goal, this is a nice opportunity for you to thank those friends, family and others who contributed.

Events hosted at the hospital brighten the day for our patients, their families, and loved ones. Help bring a smile to a child’s face by hosting your own event. We welcome programs that are entertaining, interactive and of interest for children of all ages.

Our established in-hospital volunteers offer patient support with reading, playing games, assisting with arts and crafts, and spending one-on-one time with patients. These activities are not considered a patient event. Hosting a patient event can mean anything from staging a theatrical/musical performance to special guest visit to providing an engaging group activity.

Guidelines for hosting an in-person or virtual patient event

  • The group hosting the event is limited to seven people, and all must be at least 18 years of age. (Age guidelines and number of people involved vary for virtual events.)
  • Production groups, such as theater and musical groups, are limited to 15 people. Performers are required to be at least 12 years of age when seasonal restrictions are in place.

  • Events and performances are usually 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Events and performances will take place in The Child Life Zone at Phoenix Children’s.
  • All members of the visiting group must be free of fever, cold and/or flu-like symptoms for two days prior to visit. In addition, they must not have been exposed recently to any contagious illnesses.
  • Events and presentations should be child-friendly and must remain free from violence and political or religious expressions.
