Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital (CCCH) is the only children’s hospital in southwest Virginia, and the third largest in the Commonwealth. CCCH is also a 501(c)(3) non–profit organization, which means donations are tax–deductible.
We are devoted exclusively to the health care needs of children and improving their quality of life. No child is ever turned away. We are the safety net for our region’s poorest children, sickest children, and children with the most specialized health care needs. More than two dozen hospitals transport their critically ill and injured children to us for access to the most advanced life–saving technology and medical services available.
Donations via Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals funded the Carilion Clinic Emergency Pediatric–Neonatal Transport, a specialized unit serving families in southwest Virginia.
We depend on the generous support of friends in the community to provide a state–of–the–art, child–friendly, and family–centered children’s hospital that our children and families deserve. Community support is a crucial part of our success in caring for children and their families.
Children require services that address their developmental and emotional needs as well as physical needs. Families need help understanding their child’s condition, caring for their child’s special needs, and living in the hospital by their child’s side. None of these services are covered by insurance reimbursements.
Additionally, over 50 percent of the children we serve are covered by Medicaid, which pays only a fraction of the costs. Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital annually provides more than $20 million in uncompensated care and charity care.
HOW YOUR GIFT HELPS
Every donation to the children’s hospital directly impacts the life of a child and their family. Community donations help us:
- Employ highly trained pediatric specialists and nurses
- Provide care to all children regardless of their family’s ability to pay, including emergency transport from other hospitals
- Operate clinics in communities where specialized pediatric services are not available
- Equip clinics, operating rooms and patients with the newest technologies and equipment designed for children’s smaller body size
- Create kid–friendly environments that promote healing, such as playrooms, a teen room, pet therapy and holiday celebrations
- Encourage children through support groups and camp experiences
- Support families with education, translators, chaplains and social work services

Volunteers are a critical part of the healing process that happens at the children’s hospital. Volunteers do everything from organizing playroom activities to supporting parents. Without them, many of our extra services would not be possible.

Carilion Clinic Children’s Hospital offers many opportunities for businesses and their employees to contribute to the important work of improving children’s health. Here are three examples:
- Make an Annual Gift
Corporate support for the children’s hospital is always welcome and needed. While unrestricted gifts allow us to support our neediest programs, you can align your giving more precisely with your business objectives by giving to one of our many departments or subspecialties.
- Employee Giving Campaign
Many companies offer a matching gift program to their employees as an added benefit. With these programs, a company will match an employee’s gift to charitable organizations. Matching gifts are strong incentives to your employees to support the children’s hospital. We can help you shape your program and speak to your employees about the impact their donations make in the lives of sick and hospitalized children.
- Create a Cause–Related Marketing Campaign
Demonstrate your company’s commitment to helping communities where you do business by donating a portion of the sales of your goods or services to the children’s hospital. It can be for a day, a week, a month or all year long. This is a great marketing and public awareness strategy that builds employee and customer loyalty, sending a powerful message that your company cares about the health and well-being of children.
