Ambassadors Program

Introducing the Ambassadors

The Ambassadors of Children's Hospital Los Angeles are an inspired group of community leaders that raise critical funds for the life-saving care, education and research that have given hope to generations of families. Together they support the hospital by personally giving or fundraising thousands of dollars a year.

Ambassadors are offered special opportunities to learn more about our hospital and participate in meaningful ways that bring them closer to the hospital's mission and community. Tours, doctor and researcher speaking events and special outreach and leadership opportunities are just some of the ways that Ambassadors can participate.

About the Speakers Series

The Ambassadors Speakers Series brings the expertise and mission of Children’s Hospital Los Angeles to the community by hosting exciting speaking events. Each session highlights the work of brilliant doctors, researchers and programs which make Children’s Hospital a pioneer in pediatric medicine. Occurring four times a year, guests are invited to take part in a dynamic presentation that inspires discovery and lively discussion.

Host Opportunity

Ambassadors are invited to host an upcoming Speakers Series. Hosts play a pivotal role in the success of the event by inviting their personal network to attend and learn about the latest research and medical breakthroughs in pediatrics.

As hosts, they commit to underwrite and/or recruit sponsors through charitable donations to Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. They are also given opportunities to represent the Speakers Series through social and traditional media.
