Make a Holiday Gift

Your holiday gift makes a world of difference to the children and families we serve year-round. When you make an online donation, your tax-deductible gift will be immediately put to work so we can continue training and retaining the best and brightest medical personnel, pursue innovative treatment and research and provide the very highest level of care to children.

Donate now at CHLA.org/DONATE.

Honor Someone Special

When making a $10 minimum gift in honor of a friend or loved one, a unique and meaningful card will be sent to notify them of your thoughtful gesture.

To make your gift, simply use our online donation form. Make sure to select the option "To Make This Gift a Tribute Donation" and provide your honoree's information. The amount of your gift will not be mentioned; however, a separate receipt will be sent to you.

Donate Blood or Platelets

As the winter holidays focus on gift-purchasing activities and fun with family and friends, the blood banks become very low at Children's Hospital. A blood transfusion or platelet donation can save a life and make a significant contribution to patients this holiday season. Make an appointment to donate blood.

Holiday Cards and Inserts

This holiday season, honor your family and friends by making a tribute gift in their name to Children's Hospital Los Angeles.

  • For a suggested minimum donation of $10, we will mail the personalized holiday-themed card notifying them of your thoughtful gesture.

    To see the front design of the holiday-themed card, click here.

  • For a suggested minimum donation of $25, we will send you five (5" x 3") standard holiday insert cards which you enclose with your own holiday cards letting others know of your kindness.

To make a holiday-themed tribute gift, please call Donor Services at 323-361-3850 or email donorservices@chla.usc.edu, and indicate your preference of holiday-themed card or insert card.

Your request must reach us by December 16th for timely delivery.

Please note that tribute donations made online yield regular cards, not holiday-themed ones. For holiday-themed ones, contact Donor Services at the info above.

Sponsor Holiday Gifts for Patient Families in Need

These families often have chronically ill or injured children receiving care at Children's Hospital Los Angeles. To sponsor holiday gifts for one of these families, please visit Holidays from the Heart.
