Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh Foundation Home Page

Parents face plenty of worries, but whether or not they can afford their child’s heath care should never be one of them. The Free Care Fund at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC is here to ensure that children within our region receive the expert care they need and deserve regardless of their families’ insurance or ability to pay.

The Free Care Fund at Children’s Hospital is sustained through donations from generous community members. Because you give, Children’s is here for every child. You can continue your support of helping and healing in our community by making a donation to the Free Care Fund today.

Your donations aren’t the only way to support the Free Care Fund! There are many additional ways for individuals, corporations and community groups to help our kids through fundraising activities. Learn about these programs here or contact us at for additional information.
