An illness or injury to a child can be traumatic for the entire
family, both emotionally and financially.
The Emergency Assistance Fund at Children's Mercy Hospitals and
Clinics uses criteria based upon patient and family needs to assist with short-term, day-to-day expenses
related to caring for their children. The fund typically assists with needs that are not
covered by insurance, or available through other benefits, family
income or community resources.
In-kind donations (i.e. gas, grocery, discount store, pharmacy
pre-paid cards) as well as monetary donations are appreciated. If
you are interested in donating to the Emergency Assistance Fund,
