Critical funding with a profound impact.

Grants provide an important source of funding for Connecticut Children’s research priorities, community health initiatives, and capital projects, areas that rely on philanthropy as they are not supported by medical insurance.

Corporate and private foundations fund the personnel, equipment, and partnerships that allow our teams to pursue research, enhance programming that promotes children’s optimal healthy development, and create facilities that are vital to our mission.

Grants to Connecticut Children’s impact the entire organization, from seed funding for young investigators to transformative gifts in support of hallmark programs and cutting-edge facilities.
