This year, WVU Medicine Children’s is holding a Mediathon in conjunction with the WVU Day of Giving. As part of this extraordinary day, you will have the opportunity to hear inspiring stories, participate in challenges, and help us raise critical funds to help improve the health of West Virginia children and women.
Why we need your support
In 2018, we treated more than 140,000 children across the state nearly 200,000 times, and our doctors performed nearly 9,000 pediatric surgeries.
Our mission is to see no child left untreated. That is accomplished through people like you — our generous supporters — who help us purchase lifesaving equipment, perform groundbreaking research and support the emotional well-being of our young patients.

How you can help
Contributing to one of our priority funds is one way to support WVU Medicine Children’s.
This fund provides support where the need is the greatest at WVU Medicine Children’s.
WVU Children’s Building Fund
The demand for pediatric services is growing at such a rapid pace that the creation of a new hospital is a must. Donations to this fund will go to help us “Grow Children’s.”
I Am . . . A Mountaineer!
Former Mountaineer athletes have the unique opportunity to do something no one else has done. Be a part of a legacy of what it means to be a Mountaineer. Support through this program benefits the new Family Resource Center as part of the “Grow Children’s” campaign.
Mountain Lakes Region
As co-chair of the Grow WVU Medicine Children’s campaign, Steve Antoline is collaborating with longtime friend, Steve Ferguson, to help the children, women and families through West Virginia and neighboring areas. Our new state-of-the-art hospital will serve the state and region providing care to our smallest citizens, while keeping our families close to home through our clinics and community hospitals.
A total of 9,468 patients came from the Mountain Lakes Region alone.
You can make change happen with a donation to Mountain Lakes Region Initiative for WVU Medicine Children’s in support of the Grow Children’s capital campaign for the new building, programs, and services.
These funds need your support, but with the ever-increasing need for private philanthropic giving, a gift to any program at WVU Medicine Children’s will be greatly appreciated.
Together — on one day — we all can help forge a brighter future for WVU and WVU Medicine Children’s.
