Once again, WVU Medicine Children’s is holding a Mediathon in conjunction with the WVU Day of Giving. As part of this extraordinary day, you 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
At WVU Medicine Children’s, we believe that children and expectant mothers should never have to travel far from home to receive the best care. We are committed to building healthier futures for our children and elevating care for all West Virginians, regardless of their ability to pay.
Your support can fill our hospital with everything that makes exceptional care possible: top talent, cutting-edge equipment and technology, innovative research and education, and expanded telemedicine capabilities. You can help us go above and beyond for West Virginia’s families.
How you can help
Contributing to one of our priority funds is one way to support WVU Medicine Children’s.
WVU Children's Building Fund
Help us complete our new, nine-story, 150-bed children’s hospital. Your donation will help us continue providing exceptional care in an environment designed specifically for children, offering hope and compassion every step of the way.
WVU Children’s Greatest Needs
This fund provides support where the need is the greatest at WVU Medicine Children’s.
Child Safety and Injury Prevention Fund
This program educates families about childproofing, preventable injury and car seat safety, including car seat inspections and installations. It also provides car seats and other child safety items for families facing financial or other emergency needs.
Child Life Fund
Child Life is the heart of our hospital, as these specialists touch every family in our care. Fear of the unknown is often a major challenge for patients and families. Child Life specialists provide age-appropriate information to help children and their families cope and prepare emotionally for invasive procedures and surgery.
