About Us

Our Vision
Help ensure the health and happiness of children everywhere.

Our Mission
To raise funds and awareness for Miami Children's Hospital.

Our Story
When Ambassador David M. Walters lost his 6-year-old granddaughter Shannon Joy to leukemia in the 1970s, due to lack of medical resources, the Ambassador vowed no child would ever have to leave South Florida to receive world-class health care. Together with doctors, nurses, technicians, staff, volunteers and the surrounding community, Ambassador Walters started Miami Children’s Hospital Foundation (MCH Foundation) to help guide the transformation of Miami Children's Hospital (MCH) into a nationally-ranked pediatric institution.

January 14, 2014 marked the beginning of a new and exciting period in the history of our Foundation. As Miami Children’s Health Foundation, we are proud  to now be part of the new Miami Children’s Health System, the region’s only healthcare system for children and an undisputed pediatric care leader. Miami Children’s is transforming healthcare with innovative ways to advance care and provide hope to children and families here in our community and around the globe. As Miami Children’s Health Foundation, we are now even more closely aligned with our mission to raise funds and awareness for Miami Children’s to help ensure the health and happiness of children everywhere.

Our Leadership
MCH Foundation is governed by a Board of Directors comprised of community, business and philanthropic leaders who serve voluntarily and without compensation. The Board and Foundation leadership are deeply committed to ensuring your donations are used in a fiscally prudent manner to benefit the children cared for by Miami Children’s Hospital.

Funding The Future
MCH is a world-wide leader in pediatric medicine, and with your support we can continue to meet the evolving medical needs of our children. A financially sound and award-winning non-profit organization, MCH Foundation’s sole mission is to create awareness and generate funds for MCH. Together, we can match your interests to the areas of greatest need to help you make a difference in a child’s life.

MCH Foundation supports the Hospital by providing the opportunity for members of the local and global community to invest in our children’s future. Your contributions help provide children with the doctors, facilities and innovations that give them the best chance to heal.

Making a Difference
When you support Miami Children’s, you not only help a child, but you give that child what he or she needs to reach the important milestones in life. Without your support, a child may not be able to take his or her first step, ride a two-wheeler or graduate from college.

Miami Children’s is here to give children the best chance to heal, and we need your support so together we can give them the best chance at life.
