The Mount Sinai Children's Center Foundation (CCF) was founded in 1989. Every year, the CCF raises most of its funds primarily through the annual Big Apple Circus Benefit. It is through the generous support and enthusiastic participation of our board members and friends that the Jack and Lucy Clark Department of Pediatrics has become one of New York City's preeminent pediatric care facilities.
The generous support of the CCF and its friends has enabled the Department of Pediatrics to renovate patient floors and to address the psychosocial needs of children while providing top quality medical care. Contributions from the CCF have significantly enhanced the research efforts of the Department which seeks new approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of childhood diseases. The Department conducts groundbreaking research in a number of areas, including food allergy, kidney and liver disease, asthma and congenital heart defects. One significant measure of the success of this effort is the external research funding that has been awarded to investigators in the Mount Sinai Department of Pediatrics, which exceeds $20 million, placing the Department in the top 15% of pediatric departments nationwide and surpassing every other pediatric program in New York State.
The Mount Sinai Children's Center Foundation is a 501c (3) non-profit organization. All donations made to The Mount Sinai Children's Center Foundation are tax-deductible.
