YOU make a difference! With your help, we give young people with conditions like autism, spinal cord injuries, rare genetic diseases and many others the individualized care they deserve. As we count down the days to the end of the year, will you donate?

Our Need is Urgent

One in six children in the U.S. has a nervous system disorder, disease or injury. That’s more than 12 million kids. At Kennedy Krieger Institute, we’re working to change that statistic through research, clinical trials and exceptional, interdisciplinary patient care.

Meet Our Ambassadors!

Every year, we select patients and students from across our clinics, programs, schools and hospital to share their journey with the community as ambassadors at our annual Festival of Trees. We congratulate this year’s ambassadors and recognize their accomplishments that led to this honor. Meet some of the incredible children, teens and young people at Kennedy Krieger:

Please support these remarkable individuals and everyone else who comes to the Institute for care. Your donation helps us continue improving countless children’s and young people’s lives through specialized research, education and healthcare.
