To be where the children are
To inspire hope and promote lifelong health by providing the best care to every child
When Ambassador David M. Walters lost his 6-year-old granddaughter Shannon Joy to leukemia in 1970 due to lack of medical resources, the Ambassador vowed no child would ever have to leave South Florida to receive world-class healthcare. 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 into a nationally-ranked pediatric institution.
Miami Children's Health 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 at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital.

Together, we can match your interests to the areas of greatest need to help you make a difference in a child’s life. Miami Children's Health 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 for health and happiness in the future.
Making A Difference
When you support Nicklaus 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. Nicklaus 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 a healthy life. There are many ways you can make a difference in the life of a child today!
