Friends of Children’s Hospital members, sponsors and supporters join with Batson Children’s Hospital every day to meet the extraordinary needs of caring for Mississippi’s sick and injured children. Together, we’ve raised nearly $20 million to improve children’s health care by building statewide community support through voluntarism, fundraising events and awareness efforts.
Contributions have purchased state-of-the art equipment, built facilities and provided services for all pediatric patients. Since its founding in 1989, Friends has helped meet specific needs from the very small, which add that extra caring touch to the very large, which anticipate the future health care needs of Mississippi’s children.
