  • A “Proud Supporter of The Children’s Heart Foundation” logo for use in your employee e-signatures and across other digital platforms.
  • A team page we set up for you on our “25 for the 25th”campaign page where your clients, supporters and even employees can donate, and which allows for a logo or photo and custom copy!
  • Spotlight acknowledgements on your organization across our digital platforms (social, e-blast and nationwide Virtual Congenital Heart Walk).
  • Fundraising ideas, support and tools!


Why Do We Need Your Support?

  • CHDs are the most commonly-occurring birth defect, affecting 1 in every 110 children born (a child born every 15 minutes in the U.S.)
  • CHDs are the leading cause of birth defect-related deaths.
  • Approximately 25% of children born with CHDs will require a heart surgery or other intervention to survive.
  • Surgery can help to repair some defects, but many individual with CHDs require additional operation(s) and/or medication.
  • Though 85% of babies born with a CHD now live to at least age 18, those with more complex CHDs are less likely to reach adulthood.
  • CHD patients may face lifelong health problems including growth and eating issues, developmental delays, difficulty with exercise, heart rhythm problems, heart failure, sudden cardiac arrest, or stroke. About 20% to 30% of persons with CHD have other birth defects or genetic disorders.
Funded research has improved survival, longevity and quality of life for Heart Warriors, and honors every Heart Angel we have lost. Today, more than two million Heart Warriors in the U.S. who may face lifelong health challenges rely on continued funding of CHD research. Your support can make a direct, tremendous difference to every Heart Warrior!
