Giving + Support

For more than a century, caring friends like you have helped Tufts Children's Hospital to pioneer the delivery of exceptional and compassionate health care for children. Our hospital, established in 1894 as Floating Hospital for Children, a hospital ship sailing in Boston Harbor, was originally funded by local citizens who cared deeply about the health of the children of our community. Today, the generosity of our supporters allows us to remain true to our core founding principle of providing high quality care to every young patient in a warm, child-centered way, giving them the very best chance to live their healthiest childhood.

Through your support, you play a vital role in our mission to improve the lives of the countless children and families every year who depend on us for excellent, accessible and family-centered care. You allow our youngest patients to benefit from the latest treatments and preventative strategies, state of the art facilities and caregivers who treat them as if they were their own while helping to advance research that will lead to better health for children everywhere. We are grateful for your support.
