Frequently Asked Questions

How will my gift be used at the Hospital?
Each and every dollar raised directly benefits programs and services at Rady Children’s Hospital-San Diego. 

Because Rady Children’s is a free-standing, non-profit hospital, and because more than 50 percent of the children who come to us have little or no private medical insurance, we would not be able to provide quality healthcare to the children of San Diego without gifts like yours. Your support ensures that every child who comes through our doors receives excellent medical care in our family-centered healing environment.
