Five Ways to Give to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital this Holiday Season

Five Ways to Give to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital this Holiday Season

Each year, our generous donors help us build and enhance our incredible programs and restock toys and supplies so our volunteers can make every day feel like Christmas. We’ve gathered 5 different ways that you can help us to bring bright, joyful moments to patients and families all year long.

1. Give Money

When you donate money directly to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health, it allows our teams to enhance our programs with the latest technology and create normal family experiences for our patients. It helps us prepare to buy what’s needed to create thoughtful, high-touch events and memories throughout the year — not to mention, it will save you time this busy holiday season!

2. Purchase Items from Our Amazon Wish List

donations​Oklahoma Children's Hospital and our volunteers make sure each child that visits our hospital can play, create and stay engaged during their stay. On average, our toy and activity carts gift more than 1,800 toys and activities each month! Knowing what is requested and most utilized by the kids, our volunteers built an Amazon wish list for our biggest needs, like baby-safe toys and items for our teens to enjoy.

3. Keep It Easy with a Recurring Gift

Schedules get busy, especially around the holidays. Consider signing up for a recurring gift this holiday season and make your generosity last throughout the year, automatically.

4. Corporate Giving

​Partnerships that match the mission of Oklahoma Children's Hospital with the generosity of the private sector can transform our community. Our philanthropy team creates unique opportunities for a company's financial sponsorship of a program to make a lasting impact on more than 100,000 children and families served each year. With your help, we can make a better tomorrow for kids in Oklahoma and beyond.

Since 2010, Spirit Halloween has donated more than $710,000 to Oklahoma Children’s Hospital OU Health through its Spirit of Children program. These donations have helped to create a new activity area for children in The Zone — making their experience a little less scary and a little more fun.
