Careful financial stewardship

At Boston Children’s Hospital we take extraordinary care to steward our financial resources wisely. Our average cost per dollar raised between 2008 and 2012 is 18.9%. Moody’s Investor’s Service gives us a bond rating of Aa2, one of only five pediatric hospitals to receive this high level of accreditation for excellent fiscal performance.

Monthly giving is a great way to make a gift that is easy on your personal finances, and hugely valuable to those in need.

Consider a gift of $15 or more, and make a little miracle happen every month.
