SSM Health-Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation, led by our Board of Governors, provides the financial support necessary for delivering exceptional health care, in state-of-the-art facilities, to all children in need of care. Through pro-active communication efforts, community cultivation, philanthropic generosity and Christ-like stewardship, the Foundation’s purpose is to build strong partnerships that will result in world-class pediatric health care at SSM Health-Cardinal Glennon Children’s Hospital.

It is the generous spirit of thousands of donors in our region and across the United States that has allowed the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation to build and sustain dozens of critical departments, programs and treatment centers at the hospital.

Donors help us to fulfill this mission in a variety of ways; hosting or attending events, sponsorships, planned gifts and bequests, annual donations, Glennon Sunday contributions, as well as through memorials and tributes to those they love. We also work with many family foundations, corporations and government agencies in creating meaningful grant opportunities focused on special treatments or programs.

The Board of Governors, a long-standing group of influential community and civic leaders, are the backbone of this Foundation. Through the leadership, commitment and generosity of these 45 to 50 individuals, the Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation has continued to grow and flourish over the years. It is the role of this board to help shape the strategic vision for the medical center, to make certain that fiscal controls are in place and to constantly grow the circle of support in the community.

Cardinal Glennon Children’s Foundation is committed to becoming a national leader in health care philanthropy. We are constantly striving to increase our support for faith-based, medical treatment and research. The Foundation is also dedicated to driving and supporting Next-Practices in the areas of wellness, prevention and nutritional programs that promote comprehensive health for children and families.
