What Inspires Us to Give
“People have asked me if it is hard to raise funds in the current economy. I tell them yes — but what is our alternative? Should we tell the family of a child who gets sick tomorrow that we’ll need to wait until the economy improves before we can raise the funds we need for a new facility? Of course not.”
Glen Greenberg, Chair, Clinical Care Center Campaign
“Supporting the efforts of Connecticut Children’s Medical Center is important to my wife and me so that we may ensure that our grandchildren, as well as all children, have long and healthy futures!”

“In 1932, our founder set up shop with the goal of providing children with opportunities to grow and explore through creative play, giving it the name ‘Lego ’, meaning ‘play well’. He paid special attention to developing a high quality system of toys that grows with and brings out the best in every child. Connecticut Children’s Medical Center’s commitment to children through precise care, superb quality and an eye toward the future epitomizes the founding concept that has served us so well over the years and we are proud to partner with them to foster every child’s opportunity to grow and develop to his or her fullest potential.”
