Ways to Donate

Donations of all sizes power every lifesaving treatment and game-changing discovery at CHOP. Give now to help us find better treatments and provide our patients and our community with much-needed programs and services. And most of all, help all children reach their potential.

If you would like to make a donation or have a question about a gift you have already made, please call our Donor Relations Line at 267-426-5332 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. Please note that Development Office staff are working remotely but are checking voicemail frequently. You may also email us at giving@chop.edu. Please do not leave any credit card information in a voicemail or in an e-mail.

Gift options

  • Cash gifts, made online or by mail or by wire transfer, offer you a charitable tax deduction.
  • Stocks and mutual funds: By making this type of gift, you can avoid paying capital gains tax that would otherwise be due if you sold these assets.
  • Donor Advised Fund: If you have established a DAF, consider recommending a grant to CHOP.
  • IRA charitable rollover: Make a gift directly from your IRA to CHOP by contacting your financial institution.

Planned giving

  • Retirement assets, such as a gift from your IRA, 401k, 403b, pension, or other tax-deferred plan.
  • Wills and trusts: You can include language in your will or trust specifying a gift to CHOP as part of your estate plan.
  • Establish a Charitable Gift Annuity or a Charitable Trust to receive income for life and additional tax benefits.
  • Life Insurance, if your life insurance policy is no longer needed or will no longer benefit your survivors.
