Our Program

The primary purpose of CiDrep SickKids Program is to collaborate with other organizations whose mission and program objectives align with ours for initiatives which create a positive, sustainable change in sick children's lives and to contribute to the well-being of our broader community.

Staff Program Guidelines


CiDrep SickKids assist with funding and finding and staff compassionate care professionals via hourly paid staffs and volunteers at hospitals and other child care facilities.


The Foundation awards support based on the following program guidelines to strategically focus our funding to make a meaningful impact in our program areas.

  1. Promote responsible care, comfort, and support to sick children within the communities we serve.
  2. We believe in the wellbeing of children, so where a child lives, should not determine if that child lives.


To qualify for staff support, a prospective grantee must be a U.S.-based, tax-exempt healthcare organization with 501(c)(3) status. A prospective grantee must also be engaged in work that fits within the Foundation’s mission and program guidelines.

We’d love to hear it! Contact our Program Manager and let us know about the amazing ideas you have.

If a project is accepted for grant consideration, the Foundation will ask for additional information which may include a detailed proposal or a meeting with the principal organizers of the project. Grants are awarded by the CiDrep SickKids Foundation board of directors, who meet four times annually.
