About Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals is the largest network of children’s hospitals in the United States and Canada and partners with leading providers of pediatric healthcare with a mission of helping as many kids as possible live better, healthier lives.

CMN Hospitals raises unrestricted funds for 170 children’s hospitals across the U.S. and Canada to help fulfill their most urgent needs. They make all of this possible at the local level. When an individual chapter raises money, those donations directly benefit the local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital.

Why CMN Hospitals?

Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds that support the health of 10 million kids each year. Their network represents the premiere children’s hospitals in their respective communities, providing the best health care possible. As True Gentlemen looking to make our community better, CMN Hospitals provides SAE members that opportunity through serving children and their families during some of the most troublesome times imaginable. Our partnership also increases CMN Hospitals’ public exposure, thereby increasing the likelihood of reaching and serving the children most in need. Their founding pledge to keep 100% of donations in the area in which they were raised and to put children first in all they do also means SAE chapters can make a direct impact to their local hospital and local community.

CMN Hospitals has been a partner of Sigma Alpha Epsilon since 2001. Since then, True Gentlemen have contributed over $1.6 million to support kids and families in their most vulnerable times and have left a lasting impact on the lives of families to remind them that the brothers of SAE stand with them.

What Can I Do?

  • Raising and donating money is the best way to support CMN Hospitals. Your collegiate or alumni chapter can hold a philanthropy event or fundraiser to do this.
  • If your campus participates in Miracle Network Dance Marathon programs, creating a team and fundraising through Dance Marathon also generates SAE impact and credit is given to the local chapter for funds raised through DM.
  • Some CMN Hospitals may also be in need of certain items for the kids, for which you could put together a donation drive. Please contact your local hospital about their specific needs.
  • If your campus is close to a CMN Hospital, you may be able to set up a visit where you could bring gifts, read, etc. to the kids. Please contact your local hospital about potential opportunities.
  • Your collegiate or alumnae chapter can participate in Extra Life, and play games to change kids’ health and change the future in support of your local children’s hospital. Learn more about the Extra Life program here.
