We all care about children — and about protecting the health of the next generation. But finding new and better clinical solutions for conditions that dramatically alter young lives requires the support of many.

With the profound changes in healthcare policy and shrinking federal support for training and discovery, your ongoing contributions have never been more critical. Your philanthropic support can:

  • Help UCI researchers make groundbreaking discoveries

  • Fund endowed faculty chairs

  • Recruit and retain key faculty in an increasingly competitive job market

  • Underwrite community education activities

  • Purchase advanced technologies

  • Improve patient care

Support for Innovation

Share in the energy, innovation, and growth of the UC Irvine School of Medicine's Department of Pediatrics. Here, the newest generation of pediatricians is training to care for your friends and families. We need your generous support to extend and continue our work. We encourage you to join our mission.

As the only academic health center in the region, UCI Health is not only a center of discovery, it is also an engine for change and innovation. Join us in our strategic mission: Discover. Teach. Heal.

You can make a difference in the lives of children today and for generations to come.
