Mission Statement

Children's Medical Fund of New York (CMF) is a volunteer-driven, non-profit organization of more than 7,500 members devoted to helping support and equip Schneider Children's Hospital, North Shore-Long Island Jewish Health System. It was formed approximately 35 years ago by a group of concerned volunteers, parents, pediatricians and community leaders who felt the urgent need for a children's hospital in the metropolitan area. Today, CMF holds the proud distinction of being the single largest contributor to Schneider Children's Hospital. Through a wide network of friends, volunteers and deeply committed donors, CMF has raised over 35 million dollars to help build, equip and secure on-going funding for programs that are vital to the needs of seriously ill children and their families. CMF is both a fund raising and grant making organization. We underwrite a wide variety of programs at Schneider Children's Hospital, many of which do not receive funding through federal financing or corporate underwriting. CMF's Allocation Committee regularly reviews funding requests submitted by Children's Hospital. Funds are allocated on an annual basis, and CMF actively follows up on the progress of these programs through annual reports and meetings with SCH physicians and administration. Over the years, Children's Medical Fund of New York has raised funds to purchase much needed medical equipment, to enhance exploration in areas such as oncology, neurology, to further education, and to institute new programs. It helps finance the Child Life Program, designed to lessen the stress of a hospital stay through therapeutic play and activities. The Pediatric Urology Research Center, funded in large part by CMF, is trying to find the cause and cure for the most common pediatric kidney malignancy, Wilm's tumor. As is evident, our involvement is wide reaching. At CMF, we believe that the high level of excellence in care at Schneider Children's Hospital must be sustained, and the growing demand for services must be met. Children's Medical Fund of New York is there to meet that need.
