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.
