Children's Circle of Care

A Special Membership Opportunity

Children’s Circle of Care is a very special group of philanthropists who donate generously to form a circle of support to help the patients and families receiving care at Rady Children’s.

Through annual gifts of $10,000 or more, Children’s Circle of Care members support a common mission: To advance the work of pediatric healthcare, research and education to benefit children.

Although Children’s Circle of Care has a presence throughout North America through 27 of the most prestigious children’s hospitals, it is most meaningful to our Rady Children’s members that all gifts remain here and benefit children in San Diego.

Children’s Circle of Care ensures that Rady Children’s is ready to help every child who needs us with the finest in medical services and compassionate care.

For more information on becoming a member, contact Amy Weeks at or 858-966-8116.

Children’s Circle of Care Events 

Children's Circle of Care Spring Celebration

Our “Philanthropy in Action” spring event gave our 2013 Children’s Circle of Care members a unique and exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Rady Children’s and how we care for kids every day.

Members attended behind-the-scenes lab tours with Children’s Circle of Care friends and Rady Children’s physicians for an exclusive look at the science behind the medicine. Following the tours, members enjoyed a formal dinner to celebrate the successes reached in caring for San Diego’s most seriously ill and injured children.

Kids like William benefit because you care

William’s mom, Valerie, received frightening news during her pregnancy when she learned her child would be born with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, or CDH, and had only a 50/50 chance of survival. Thanks to the regions only designated pediatric trauma center, at Rady Children’s, and the state-of-the-art facilities, William’s medical condition is stable, and no longer needs follow-up care.

The Child Life Program at Rady Children's is 100% dependent upon philanthropy.
