Children of Bellevue is a non-profit organization founded in 1949 to initiate, fund, and develop programs that improve the health and well-being of children at Bellevue Hospital. We are advocates for pediatric patients and their families and are dedicated to alleviating the pain, loneliness, and fear that can accompany childhood hospitalization. We also seek to enhance early development and school readiness in children at risk of falling behind due to family poverty. All of our life-changing programs are made possible solely through philanthropic donations.
Donations to our team fund five core programs that serve the 25,000 children and their families that come to Bellevue each year. As we do not accept payment for our services, Children of Bellevue's programs are entirely funded by charitable donations.
