Daisy Days

Daisy Days logo For more than 60 years, people throughout the community have supported the kids at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) through Daisy Days. The monthlong, grassroots event began in 1953 with paper daisies for donations, and has evolved over the years to include change collections, parades, carnivals, luncheons and more.

This year, there are so many great ways for you to join the fun of Daisy Days! With your support, we can create more breakthroughs for children here — and around the world.

What Your Funds Will Support

Funds raised during this year’s Daisy Days will support the Children’s Fund at CHOP, allowing the hospital to seize new opportunities and meet unexpected needs as they arise. The Children’s Fund could fast-track a research discovery, purchase equipment to revolutionize patient care, or launch a new service for patients and families.

We also welcome you to designate your funds to a specific area of the hospital that is meaningful to your school, community group or business.
