Children's Circle of Care

A Special Membership Opportunity

Children’s Circle of Care is a very special group of philanthropists who donate generously to help the patients and families receiving care at Rady Children’s.

Through annual gifts of $10,000 or more, Children’s Circle of Care members support a common mission: To advance the work of pediatric healthcare, research and education to benefit children.

Although Children’s Circle of Care has a presence throughout North America through 27 of the most prestigious children’s hospitals, it is most meaningful to our San Diego members that all gifts made to our hospital support care and research at Rady Children's.

Kids like William benefit because you care

Will’s webslinger pose — Spiderman is his favorite superhero at the moment — and the look in his eyes tells you he’s a force to be reckoned with.

William’s mom, Valerie, received frightening news during her pregnancy when she learned her child would be born with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, or CDH, and had only a 50/50 chance of survival. Thanks to the regions only designated pediatric trauma center, at Rady Children’s, and the state-of-the-art facilities, William’s medical condition is stable, and no longer needs follow-up care. Read Will's story.
