Make a Donation to Children's Hospital

Your giving helps us make a difference. Since 1937, East Tennessee Children's Hospital has had an open-door policy to help sick kids. To keep serving our community, we need your help.

East Tennessee Children's Hospital is a 501(C)(3) tax-exempt institution. Without a tax exemption, Children's Hospital would be forced to pass along our increased expenses to our patients. As our number of patients grows each year, so does our need for more equipment and larger facilities to serve our community. Your donation is 100% tax-deductible and is always used to improve the services, facilities, equipment and patient care at East Tennessee Children's Hospital.
