Donate Now: Pennies from Heaven

How Pennies from Heaven Began

The Pennies from Heaven Fund was created to ease some of the financial hardships parents face when their child is hospitalized for a serious illness or injury — and help to keep families together when they need each other the most. Funds can cover expenses such as overnight kits, brown bag lunches, household bills, car repairs, travel needs, out-of-pocket expenses, child care for siblings, or other expenses that will allow a family member to spend more time at the hospital with their child.

Pennies from Heaven relies exclusively on the generosity of community members like you. All money collected goes directly to families in need. For more information, please call the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation at 1-877-247-4483 or visit
