Make a Difference in the Lives of our Youngest Patients

A parent’s greatest wish is for their child to live a healthy, happy life. Sometimes, illness or injury get in the way of that dream. That’s why Hackensack Meridian Children’s Health is dedicated to providing the best medical resources available, close to home. Donors to our pediatric programs help Joseph M. Sanzari Children’s Hospital and K. Hovnanian Children’s Hospital offer comprehensive medical care from the moment they enter this world until they enter young adulthood. From providing crucial medical equipment, to cancer research and treatment, or mental, emotional and financial support, philanthropy helps to advance care for our youngest patients, and make hospitalization a little easier on everyone.

Tackle Kids Cancer

Nationally, only 4% of government research funding is allocated to pediatric cancer. Tackle Kids Cancer is helping to bridge that gap by raising money for pediatric cancer research and patient care programs occurring at Joseph M. Sanzari Children's Hospital and K. Hovnanian Children's Hospital.


Supporting our Autism fund allows to ensure that children on the autism spectrum, and their families, receive the quality care that they need and deserve.
