At Kennedy Krieger, we are constantly reminded of the power of one, and depend on the generosity of our individual donors to help continue our work at the Institute.

At the heart of Kennedy Krieger’s reputation for excellence are donors who provide gifts to further the research, treatment, education, and community programs that benefit thousands of children every year. These vital elements of Kennedy Krieger’s mission have never been more important than they are today. At Kennedy Krieger, donors have an opportunity to invest in an institution with a proven track record of success, in a future that is promising and secure, and in an institution that has the strengths to make far-reaching contributions to the community.

There are many ways one person can make a difference…and a gift. If you wish, you may choose to designate a specific program to receive your support, and/or you may choose to celebrate a special occasion, honor or memorialize an individual, or recognize an accomplishment with your gift.
