Endowed chairs

Generous donors make endowed chairs possible at Children’s Wisconsin. An esteemed honor, endowed chairs have a far-reaching impact on our families by fostering innovation, scholarship and research.

These special positions, honoring our pediatric caregivers, researchers and administrators are possible only because of your support. Your gifts help us attract the brightest minds in pediatric medicine and are imperative to continually provide the best care for kids. Endowed chairs provide a perpetual source of funding from investment earnings, while maintaining the principal. For more information on establishing an endowed chair, please contact the foundation.
