CHOC Foundation

We all know that kids grow up too fast. At CHOC, we believe illness or injury shouldn’t put childhood on pause. That’s why we’ve assembled a mighty brigade of pediatric healthcare experts to give our kids the best chance of growing into healthy and happy adults. And we need your help. As a non-profit health system, we rely on community support to provide leading edge care for infants, children and adolescents close to home. You can feel good knowing your donation is an investment in preserving the magic of childhood in Orange County and beyond.
