About Us & How to Help 

We’re Building a New SickKids. Join Us.

At SickKids, we are fighting.
To save lives, to find new cures and to provide world-class care. But we are also fighting against the limits of a 70-year-old hospital where parts of the building don’t meet modern building codes. Where our most vulnerable patients are crammed into overcrowded rooms. Where our outdated spaces can’t accommodate the weight of an MRI machine. That’s where you come in. We need you on our side in the SickKids VS Limits Campaign, the biggest fundraising campaign in Canadian health-care history, to help us build a brand-new hospital. 

Campiagn thermomether - 77% of $1.3 billion

To build a new SickKids, we need $1.5 billion in donations.
With the support of our generous donors, we are halfway to our goal—but we can’t break ground without you. Together, we will build a state-of-the-art hospital on University Avenue, and a Patient Support Centre behind it that will house our child health leaders. 

Your support will help us in the following areas:

Re-Imagine Our Campus

We need buildings that lift—not limit—our ability to care for patients.
We will construct a state-of-the-art hospital and patient support building to accommodate the best that medicine can offer, matching our world-class expertise with the best clinical spaces for patients.

Continue Breakthrough Research

With your help, we will take more discoveries from the lab bench to the bedside. 

Investing in science will help speed our ability to take leading research and turn it into groundbreaking treatments and cures. Through clinical trials, support for research and funding for our scientists, we will transform the way we do medicine, to make a bigger impact on patients, sooner. 

Partner for Better Care

Seamless health care means no cracks to fall through. 

Our investments will expand initiatives that build capacity both at home and across the globe —delivering sustainable health care worldwide, ensuring children can receive the integrated care they need no matter where they live.
