Our Philanthropic Priorities

Our Philanthropic Priorities

At Oklahoma Children’s Hospital, our mission is leading health care – in patient care, education and research. As Oklahoma’s only research based academic healthcare centers, our combined efforts improve the lives of all children through transformational philanthropy.

Donations of all sizes power every lifesaving treatment and game-changing discovery found here for our tiniest patients. Your gift here lifts the entire family, provides life-saving equipment in world-class facilities and invests in research to impact future generations. Together, we’re leading health care for Oklahomans.

Our priorities center around funding for child-specific causes: program and facility enhancements, new equipment, extended training and education for care teams, and special projects of the system. Particular areas of philanthropic focus include: pediatrics, oncology, cardiology, neurology and NICU.

Help Us Find Better Treatments
