Heartstrings is a dynamic giving circle of women who wish to learn more about the life-saving medical care at Children’s and support it through an annual gift which is pooled and granted by vote from the membership to a specific hospital program.
The membership includes three lunch and learn sessions that will each feature a core service line at Children’s, followed by an interactive tour of their department. Heartstrings members make a 100% tax-deductible donation of $500.
Some of the past projects funded by the Heartstrings giving circle include the Newborn Intensive Care Unit, Behavioral Health Clinic, the Hematology/Oncology Clinic, the Eating Disorder Clinic and Project Austin.

Sponsor Changing Lives Together Capital Campaign
Children are at the heart of who we are and everything we do. It is with them in mind that Children’s has launched the 5-year, $50 million “Changing Lives Together” Capital Campaign.
We believe this campaign has the power to improve the health and well-being of the smallest and sickest among us for generations to come — and to transform Children’s into one of the great epicenters of pediatric healthcare in the nation and in the world.
The “Changing Lives Together” Capital Campaign will support plans to expand Children’s main campus and regional presence, elevate pediatric critical care, and foster ground-breaking research.
Be Part Of Our Tree Of LifeThe Tree of Life is a unique display in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU) lobby to celebrate those who donate to the NICU renovation project. Make a $150 donation to purchase a leaf on the tree.
To inscribe your leaf with a customized message, leave the specific text in the “Notes” field. Each donor leaf can accommodate up to 3 lines of type with 15 characters, including spaces, per line.
Establish A Named EndowmentA named endowment or facility means that your legacy, or the legacy of a loved one, will live on for years into the future. Children’s has many opportunities for naming departments, clinics, endowed chairs, fellowships, and programs. All of these offer life-saving support to children.
