For more information on the following gift opportunities, contact the Children's Hospital Development Department at (504) 896-9375.
Making a memorial gift to Children's Hospital
A gift to Children's Hospital is a thoughtful way to remember the passing of a friend or loved one. Your gift is life affirming and a wonderful way to celebrate the life of someone who touched you. Gifts totaling $2,500 or more in memory of someone will result in that person's name being added to a special memorial plaque at Children's Hospital. A plaque dedicated to the memory of an individual can be established through a gift of $10,000 or more. Memorial Gift Form (.pdf format)
Making an honor gift to Children's Hospital
Looking for a meaningful way to celebrate an important event? What better way to celebrate the birth of a child than through a gift in the child's honor to Children's Hospital? You can make a gift to Children's Hospital to celebrate virtually any happy occasion: a marriage, the birthday of a friend, a bar mitzvah, a graduation, or an anniversary. Having a tough time finding the perfect holiday gift for that friend who has everything? Make a gift in his or her honor to Children's Hospital. Honor Gift Form (.pdf format)
Making an estate gift to Children's Hospital
Estate gifts to Children's Hospital help ensure that our patients will continue to receive the best available care well into the 21st century. Your gift may be designated to support a specific program at Children's Hospital or given in support of the hospital's greatest area of need. Some estate gifts to Children's Hospital can help reduce estate taxes and, in some cases, preserve valuable assets for loved ones. For more information about charitable estate planning, please call the hospital's Development Office at (504) 896-9375, Monday through Friday, 8:30 am-5 pm CST.

Making a gift to the Leaman Family Fund
The Leaman Family Fund was established in 1992 through a generous gift from a local family. This fund is used to provide for the needs of families who have children receiving care at Children's Hospital. It has been used to provide everything from meals for parents of hospitalized children, to a therapeutic tricycle for a physical therapy patient, to space heaters for a cystic fibrosis patient living with his mother in an unheated trailer. No gifts to this fund are applied to patient charges. To make a gift to the Leaman Family Fund, send your check, made payable to Children's Hospital, to:
Leaman Family Fund
200 Henry Clay Avenue
New Orleans, LA 70118
Toys and gifts are needed year-round for patients from birth to 21. We receive many gifts during the holiday season, but toy donations throughout the year are needed to bring smiles to our young patients during every season. Toy Safety Guidelines and Toy Wish List (.pdf format)
