This year Change 4 Children’s Foundation is joining Children’s Hospital Los Angeles “Make March Matter” campaign and encouraging children, families, schools, and local businesses to join us in raising funds throughout the month of March by using our virtual and real change jars. Make March Matter is an annual fundraising campaign that brings local businesses and the community together to raise awareness of children’s health. By joining this campaign we hope to further engage young philanthropists in having an active role in Make March Matter for the children and families served by CHLA.

- CHLA is the #1 children’s hospital on the West Coast and #5 in the country according to U.S. News & World Report
- More than 70% of the patients we serve are on Medi-Cal which means we are a “safety net” hospital
