About Us

Our mission:

We inspire our communities to invest in health and scientific advances to improve the lives of children and their families in Canada and around the world.

Our vision: 

Healthier Children. A Better World.™

  • Established in 1972, SickKids Foundation raises funds on behalf of The Hospital for Sick Children.
  • The Foundation's fundraising is driven by the belief that improving the health and well-being of children is one of the most powerful ways to improve society.
Community support, separate and distinct from government and granting agencies, is a critical source of funding for SickKids.

  • In the fiscal year that ended March 31, 2013, SickKids Foundation invested $92.6 million in child health research, learning and care.
  • $88.7 million of that investment went to critical initiatives at SickKids – 13 per cent of overall funding support at SickKids last year.
