Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is dedicated to improving the health and welfare of all children by raising funds and awareness for the pediatric programs of UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital.
A founding principle of Children's Miracle Network Hospitals is that all funds raised stay local. Therefore, everything raised in the Northeast Florida/Southeast Georgia area is used to purchase medical equipment, child life activities and educational resources for the pediatric programs of UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals began as a televised fundraiser in a small studio in 1983. Marie Osmond and John Schneider co-founded Children's Miracle Network Hospitals along with a small, dedicated team of 20 children's hospitals, 20 television stations, six sponsors and a handful of national staff. Today, we are 170 children's hospitals, countless individuals, organizations and media partners with a common goal—to help sick and injured kids in local communities. We touch the lives of more kids and their families than any other children's charity.
Children's Miracle Network Hospitals was founded with two simple principles:
- Help as many children as possible by raising funds for children's hospitals.
- Keep funds in the community in which they were raised to help local children.
How We Use Local Funds
UF Health Jacksonville and Wolfson Children's Hospital share the funds raised through our local office. More than 170,000 children come to these two hospitals each year for treatment, including children with cancer, AIDS, and birth defects...organ transplant patients and accident victims...and children living with chronic illnesses such as diabetes, cystic fibrosis, kidney disease and heart disease.
Our hospitals use Children's Miracle Network Hospitals money to purchase patient care equipment, fund research, provide diversionary activities and support educational and advocacy programs for children's health. Children's Miracle Network Hospitals makes it possible for these hospitals to maintain and upgrade their pediatric programs so they can continue to provide young patients with the most advanced medical treatment available.
