“It’s not how much we give but how much love we put into giving.”
–Mother Teresa

The Child Neurology Foundation invites you to join the child neurology community and assist our efforts to improve the lives of children affected by neurologic conditions that each may reach her full potential. Each and every contribution, regardless of the gift level, is critically important to the Foundation’s work.

Programs and Services

While there are many viable and trustworthy disease-specific organizations that serve children and families affected by specific diagnoses to which you could entrust your donation dollars, the Child Neurology Foundation is in a unique position to serve the overarching needs of all members of the child neurology community and seeks to fill the unmet needs not addressed by these disease-specific groups. Additionally, many pediatric neurologic disorders are very rare — many with less than 2500 cases worldwide, some with just 1 or 2 known cases in all of history — and may not have a support group or established advocacy effort of their own. We receive emails from these caregivers regularly; they often feel lost and alone. While we connect them with established rare disease organizations or experts, we also stand ready to advocate for them directly under the umbrella of pediatric neurologic disorders. Please explore our Programs and Services to learn more.

By making a donation, you enable us to create and expand our programs and services, which not only provide children and families with the practical resources they require but also strengthen connections between all partners of care within the child neurology community so that we can support one another in the work that leads to the best quality of care — and the highest quality of life — for every child.

There are several ways to support the 1 in 6 children living with a neurologic disorder, including:
