When you become a SickKids Innovator, you join an exclusive group that fights for children’s health together.
SickKids Innovators is an exclusive program that engages the next generation of philanthropists to support SickKids Foundation and speedily deploy funds in the areas of most need, such as research, clinical advances and compassionate care.
SickKids Innovators are a select circle, invited to four inspiring networking events per year. To join this exclusive group, Innovators commit to a $10,000 (minimum) investment over the course of two years. In exchange, you’ll be informed, and empowered: through the stories of courage and hope that play out every day at SickKids; through hearing thought leaders from every sector, sharing personal perspectives on philanthropy, and much more; and through behind-the-scenes tours of state-of-the-art facilities, where you'll be updated on ground-breaking research and innovative treatments by members of the Hospital, and learn, from subject matter experts, about the projects that are SickKids highest priorities.
Then, it's your turn to choose: SickKids Innovators recommend, as a group which project to fund. Since the program's inception, Innovators have donated over $1,500,000 to support the Pain Centre, the Paediatric Advanced Care Team, the Centre for Image-Guided Innovation and Therapeutic Intervention, the Medical Psychiatry Alliance, the SickKids-Ghana Initiative, RNA Sequencing for Cancer and Rare Diseases, the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Paediatric Intensive Care Unit. In 2020, Innovators are supporting Precision Child Health.
