Endowment Gifts Transform Lives
Endowed giving supports the highest level of clinical and psychosocial care for kids in our community by establishing a program, lectureship, position or cause within the hospital in perpetuity. Endowments provide critical ongoing financial income to support a wide array of important purposes including scholarships and fellowships to train the best and brightest, chairs and professorships that attract nationally recognized physicians and scientists, and sustain research, technology and innovation to discover new ways to diagnose and treat disease. Many donors find endowment giving particularly meaningful because, in addition to creating so many worthwhile positions and services, these gifts create a legacy, ensuring that vital programs at Children’s Mercy are sustained for generations to come.
