COVID-19 Philanthropy Update

from the Chief Philanthropy Officer of Nemours Children's Specialty Care

As stewards of children’s health, we have a responsibility to build close collaborations within our communities, leveraging our expertise and infrastructure to pave the way for a healthier future. With the help of benevolent donors, like you, we are doing just that. Now, more than ever, families will rely on our support.

If you have the ability to help Nemours’ patient families, please consider a gift to the Patient and Family Support Fund or the COVID-19 Community Response Fund

The Patient and Family Support Fund at Nemours provides assistance to meet the emergency needs of Nemours’ patients and families who have exhausted all other resources or are in acute crisis. Our community partners and individual donors make it possible to help patients with taxi rides and bus passes, grocery store gift cards, and essential items such as diapers, car seats, supplemental nutrition drinks and baby monitoring systems. The support fund improves a family’s access to care, extends the care they receive in the clinic to their home, and provides families with an amount of relief while caring for their medically complex child. Now more than ever, our patients need our help during this crisis.

Community Response Fund, which will help us address important needs that our organization, including our patients and associates, are facing at this time. Your support is what makes it possible for us to ensure the best possible care is available for the children who rely on us every day. Thank you for helping us inspire hope and healing through your generosity. 

Thank you for your support!
