A gift to Mott can transform children’s and families’ lives in many ways. Here are a few priority areas of focus:
Put a teddy bear in the arms of a child at Mott when they most need a hug! Your gift of a bear offers reassurance and encouragement, and also benefits clinical research and programs for our patients and families.
U-M athlete and NFL star Charles Woodson established the Charles Woodson Clinical Research Initiative at Mott to equip the most gifted physician-scientists with the resources necessary to push the boundaries of pediatric medicine. Your gift will advance the most innovative research ideas that have great potential to transform treatment approaches and offer real cures for children who need it most.
C.S. Mott Annual Fund
Your gift to the C.S. Mott Annual Fund will help us respond to needs that may not be met by any other source. This fund is a flexible resource to respond to the needs of our patients, our clinicians and our scientists.
The Family Hope Fund
The Family Hope Fund at Mott was established by Detroit Tiger Brandon Inge and his wife, Shani, to help families maintain a healthy sense of stability and comfort while their child is ill. At a time of great anxiety, support to pay for food, uncovered medical expenses, or a utility bill can make the difference between despair and the strength to cope. The skilled social workers at Mott are able to assess the extent that a child’s illness has compromised the family’s well-being and to nominate those who will most benefit from Family Hope Fund assistance.
