The Guardian Society

Ensuring Children's Long-Term Success

The Guardian Society honors people like you who are helping protect and support the excellent care we provide for kids through their estate plans. Guardian Society members are invited to an annual event featuring an update from Children’s CEO Peggy Troy and a presentation by one of Children’s outstanding physicians or caregivers. With permission, Guardian Society members are also recognized on a permanent display in our hospital.

If you have remembered Children’s in your estate, we encourage you to let us know so that we may have the opportunity to thank you. While public recognition of your gift often inspires generosity in others, we also understand that anonymity may be your preference.

We are grateful to our Guardian Society members for their foresight and generosity in helping future generations.
