Toys & Gifts

Thank you for your interest in supporting Rady Children’s with an in-kind gift.

Toys and gifts

*In-kind gifts are contributions of goods or services, such as toys.

We are grateful for your commitment to patients and their families by supporting hospital programs that provide diversions, engagement opportunities and comfort. We are currently unable to collect or accept toys from the community. However, donating to our Toy and Diversionary Activity Fund will help provide art supplies, toys, prizes, books, games and so much more.

Holiday Giving Update:

With your help, the Rady Children’s Family Holiday Toy Store will return this December! The Family Toy Store is an annual event for parents with a child receiving inpatient care to be able to “shop” (free of cost) for a gift for their child in treatment.

That's why it’s so important for those that are interested in donating toys to instead consider supporting the Toy and Diversionary Activity Fund. Donations will allow us to provide a quality selection of toys that parents will be excited to give their children and that also meet infection-control standards. Parents are busy providing care and through this fund we can ensure they are ready with a special gift for their child this holiday season.

Please consider supporting the Hospital Toy and Diversionary Activity Fund or consider starting a Light the Way team (coming soon) to fundraise along with us.
