Corporate and Foundation Partnerships
Children's Health Fund was one of Red Nose Day US's first partners when the intiative launched in 2015. In 2020/2021 the Red Nose Day Fund supports three main areas of planned activities:
- delivering multi-disciplinary, state of the art, patient-centered primary care to tens of thousands of homeless and poor children regardless of ability to pay;
- reducing health barriers to learning;
- improving health and well-being of all children through advocacy and public education.
The annual support from the ELMA Foundation has allowed CHF to reach ambitious milestones in our quest to impact more children with more services in more places as we continue to annualize growth through expanding our National Network, adding innovative programming, responding to public health crises and making sure the voices of children living in poverty are heard by the nation’s lawmakers.
With the support of PepsiCo Foundation, CHF launched the COVID-19 Community Emergency Response and Recovery Fund in March 2020. PepsiCo's grant allowed us to increase access to COVID-19 screening and testing. To date, Children’s Health Fund partners have screened 707,740 and tested 114,158 children and their families for COVID-19. The Fund allows us to increase access to COVID-19 screening and testing, helps address the emotional trauma children and families are experiencing, and helps mitigate financial challenges and lost learning opportunities, as well as supports our clinical partners in continuing to provide healthcare to children and families as they recover from the pandemic.

With Sanofi's support, CHF will host a series of roundtables across the country to discuss community-driven solutions that address social determinants of health, the “conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age,” such as affordable housing, transportation, healthy food, and high-quality education--all instrumental in influencing health outcomes. The objective of these one-day convenings is to foster cross-sector partnerships with the goal of designing a response to a social determinant issue in that community. Sanofi is also CHF’s long-time Signature Partner for our Medical Home Initiative, which uses a high level of intensity and coordination needed by children with complex special health care needs. Sanofi’s current grant ensures that the fundamental services at the Trenton Children's Health Project at Henry J. Austin Health Center in New Jersey and the Children's Health Project in the District of Columbia remain at the highest levels of quality and are accessible to children and their families, regardless of where they live or their ability to pay.

The Hearst Foundation supports CHF's two-pronged approach to meet the COVID-19 recovery needs of children in the communities CHF serves.

With support from the Baxter International Foundation CHF will be able to sustain and expand Health-e-Schools, a nationally recognized telehealth program in rural McDowell and Avery Counties in North Carolina.
