You’ll also get behind-the-scenes access to learn more about Cincinnati Children’s groundbreaking research and innovative care—making us the No. 1 pediatric hospital in the nation according to U.S. News & World Report.

Beginning with a commitment of $1,500, new council members build strong ties with other members of our community who have a passion for making an impact on child health—here in Cincinnati, across the country and around the globe.
