You Believe in More Moments for Kids


As we navigate our new normal, you can shine a light of hope for kids and families. We invite you to join our community of champions to make an impact. Whether your gift helps provide a diagnosis that wasn’t available yesterday through cutting-edge research, trains a new nurse, or provides a cozy blanket to a sick child, giving helps families when they need it most.

Many ways to give 

Donating and making masks

We're requiring all patients, visitors, and employees to wear masks while at Children's Mercy, including children 2 years of age and older. We will supply masks for visitors who need them, but we are running low on handmade masks — especially child-sized ones — and need more!

If you have handmade masks, or new or unopened N95 or surgical masks, you can sign up to schedule a donation drop-off.

If you are looking for instructions on how to sew child size masks, here is an easy template and video tutorial.  

Donate to our I Love Children's Mercy fund

When you support the hospital through the "I Love Children's Mercy" fund you fuel everything we do to provide kids the healthiest, most hopeful futures possible.

Wish list items

For our most needed in-kind items beyond PPE, please view our wish list items on the Donate Goods page. If you have any questions about additional in-kind donations (snacks, meals, toys, books, etc.) please email our donation staff directly at



Our community shows that, together, LOVE WILL make a difference. Join our community of champions by sharing your message of support for the Children's Mercy team with #TogetherLoveWill on social media. You can also download this sign and share why you give to Children's Mercy!


Bridges Family Gives Back While Planning for the Future

Ainsley Bridges was born with an extremely rare, genetic disorder called Phenylketonuria (PKU). Left untreated, PKU causes brain damage. Because of the ongoing care Ainsley receives from a multidisciplinary team at Children’s Mercy, she’s able to live a full and healthy life.

Recently, Ainsley’s parents, Justin and Mindy, decided to add Children’s Mercy as a beneficiary in their estate. “Children’s Mercy doesn’t just provide great care. They want to find better ways to treat all kids. It gives us hope that our support will benefit not only my child and my family, but the whole community,” said Mindy.
