DONATE: Why DonateFunding PartnersMillion-Dollar DonorsDonate Now


Why donate to Heart to Heart?

Donate to Heart to Heart to save children’s lives by sharing the cure for childhood heart disease. For the last twenty-five years, thanks to our cost-effective program model, we have been able to save more than 25,000 children with heart defects with a cash investment on our part of about $250 per child.

Your donation will help us carry out our urgent mission – to save children dying from treatable heart disease. Help us reach babies and young children desperately waiting for life-saving surgery.

Cost-effectiveness of our program model

Each year, Heart to Heart’s medical volunteers – cardiac specialists from leading U.S. centers – donate over $1 million in pro bono services to advance our mission. Because our volunteers teach doctors how to save lives, as each team we train reaches self-sustainability, costs completely shift to the local hospital site, and Heart to Heart’s cash investment per child is reduced to zero. Each of our self-sustaining sites treats hundreds of children annually.

Return on donor investment

Heart to Heart’s program model:

  • Saves lives – through surgical procedures performed on thousands of babies and children at our
    sponsored sites that are completely self-sustaining
  • Develops access to life-saving heart care – our self-sustaining regional children’s heart centers provide access to surgery for thousands of children in Russia’s heartland for the first time ever
  • Leaves behind a life-saving legacy – our network of self-sustaining centers measurably impacts the
    entire nation’s ability to combat childhood heart disease
