Philanthropy






Every year at this time, we go through the exercise of organizing and listing the staggering number of donors, organizations, events and programs that provide the critically needed support to our hospital. It is a gratifying but certainly not perfect effort, since many of our most poignant gifts are small, and many of our donors’ most provocative efforts can hardly be summarized with just a name on a list. This is indeed a happy problem to have. We always feature a handful of donors to help give life to these annual lists; we wish we could feature and list them all. All 10,356!

The amazing support we received in 2016 is a beautiful reflection of the love our community has for our kids and the pride we all feel in helping Children’s of Alabama be a very special place for children. Thank you.

*This year, we listed family foundations under both the individual and foundation categories, and combined giving totals where appropriate for the sake of this year end recognition.

Children's of Alabama

Publix Super Markets & Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Publix Super Markets, a partner of the Children’s Miracle Network (CMN) Hospitals, has raised more than $1,148,650 for Children’s. Publix raises funds across most of Alabama – all $1, $3 or $5 at a time. Publix relies on the communities they serve to donate to the Children’s /CMN Hospitals campaign. Publix associates also contribute heavily to the campaign, as they have gained an understanding of how fundraising impacts the patients we serve.

At our 2016 Publix kickoff event, more than 60 Publix leaders and associates had the opportunity to hear from Kim Mitchell, mother of Alabama’s 2015-2016 CMN Hospitals Champion James Strong. Publix also was recognized in 2016 on Children’s Pillars of the Community plaque for raising more than $1 million in cumulative giving for the hospital.

Castin’ ‘N Catchin’

Four families in north Alabama launched a fishing tournament called Castin’ ‘n Catchin’. The families became friends while bonding over their children’s shared experience of congenital heart disease. The event was founded in honor of their children and to further research for the disease. The 2016 event featured more than 175 boats and raised more than $100,000. Children’s would like to thank the committee and sponsors that made this possible
