We are challenging Canada’s tech and innovation community to be as invested in SickKids’ future as they are in their companies. Our goal: $25 million for new, state-of-the-art spaces, people, and programs. As drivers of change, you are redefining how we live: how we invest, how we connect with friends and family, how we think and act.
Nurses, doctors, patients, CEO’s, and Jr. developers. Here are the people making a difference and their stories. Join our community and help win battles everyday.

Hosting an event is a great way to give back to SickKids. If you are interested, contact us and we can help get you started.
Your donations will help us towards 3 main initiatives:
Your visionary support of the first Chair in Biomedical Informatics and Artificial Intelligence in Canada will provide the unique expertise to develop tools to analyze increasingly complex patient data, so we can deploy resources more efficiently and do away with human error. Knowing statistically probable outcomes from a patient’s distinct health profile will help doctors make the right decision at the right time. Physicians and nurses won’t have to wait for medical complications to arise because they will be able to predict them.
SickKids is working to be the first children’s hospital in Canada to harness the power of data intelligence to improve the delivery of health care. In its most exciting clinical application, high-performance computing is used to integrate and analyze reams of available patient data to support management and therapeutic decision-making for individual patients. These sophisticated algorithms will be able to predict how, for example, a patient responds to a therapy, their risk of infection, and their long-term prognosis. Your support of big data analytics will help physicians make more confident decisions, provide greater operational efficiency, and reduce risk for our patients.
SickKids will construct an efficient, safe clinical campus, including a state-of-the-art Emergency Suite, capable of delivering the most cutting-edge, compassionate care. The new Suite will double the physical space of the Emergency Department, making it possible to accommodate a growing volume of patients. The advanced facility will allow us to lead in the development and application of revolutionary new diagnostics, therapies and cures. SickKids will ensure patients receive the best care possible in an environment that allows families to be actively involved in their child’s treatment and recovery.
