Fundraise for Kids

Give Mercy — organize a fundraising event 

As a nonprofit hospital, Children’s Mercy relies on generous donors like you to provide top-quality care for patients and families.

When families can’t pay, we don’t turn them away. It’s because of our generous and caring community that Children’s Mercy can keep our doors open. Your fundraising event will help us continue to provide the highest level of care to all kids who come through our doors.

Groups and individuals alike can create meaningful opportunities that will benefit the thousands of kids currently receiving care and support the discoveries needed to help kids in the future get healthy and thrive.

Works of heART

Wanting to share his love for Children’s Mercy, local artist Donald “Scribe” Ross brought a community of artists together to make inspiring and breathtaking works of art. The artists then sold these heart-shaped pieces to benefit Children’s Mercy!

Hattie’s Hope

When little Hattie was in the NICU, her mom Ambria found comfort in little things that made life seem normal. She dressed Hattie in cute bows and matching blankets. Everyone would stop by to see what her little fashionista was wearing. When Hattie passed away at just 10 weeks old, Ambria started an organization that donates handmade hair bows and receiving blankets to babies in the NICU to provide their parents with the same comfort and simple joy.
