Help us Reach our Fundraising Goal!

Every step counts towards achieving the healthy future every child deserves. By reaching your personal fundraising goal, you help us provide life-saving care to all our patients. With your support, you ensure our patients and their families have hope in the darkest times, and healing when they need it most.

Philanthropy touches every medical service we offer, every stop along a patient’s journey, and every groundbreaking idea yet to be discovered. It is where excellence in research, care, treatment, and cures begin.

You help make this possible with your support of Walk for Children’s 2024 presented by UPMC and UPMC Health Plan.

Matching Gifts 

Does Your Company Match Charitable Donations?  

Many businesses and corporations match charitable gifts (and volunteer hours) made by their employees, retirees, and employee spouses’ dollar for dollar. To find out if your employer (or your spouse’s employer) is one of the 17,000 companies that match gifts, please use our search tool below, or contact your HR department to see if your company offers a matching gifts program.

Your matching contribution will be credited towards your fundraising goal once it has been received.
