Giving to Boston Children's

Boston Children's Hospital has been quietly changing the future of health for every child, here and around the world, since 1869. Named the #1 children's hospital for care in the country, we are also the largest research center for pediatric health. We find solutions others can't.

We presently have a diverse, trained group of more than 1,600 individuals who selflessly devote thousands of hours each year to support the hospital staff and our patients and families. Whether playing with children during wait times or helping families find their way in the halls, the volunteers at Boston Children's make a difference, providing a special human connection that often eases the stress for patients and families going through difficult times.

Donate blood

The Boston Children's Blood Donor Center is an independent collection facility, serving the needs of pediatric patients in the Longwood Medical Area. Established in 1958, primarily to provide fresh blood for the new field of open-heart surgery, we now supply virtually all of the blood and blood products used at Boston Children's.

We are grateful to have been ranked #1 on U.S. News & World Report's list of the best children's hospitals in the nation for the fourth year in a row, an honor we could not have achieved without the patients and families who inspire us to do our very best for them. Thanks to you, Boston Children's is a place where we can write the greatest children's stories ever told.
