The Children's Medical Research Foundation (CMRF) Inc. exists to raise funds and stimulate change to significantly improve the quality of children's healthcare and research to transform the lives of sick children, young people and their families in Ireland and the United States.

Celebrating Over 40 Years of Impact
Since 1979, The Children's Medical Research Foundation, Inc. has been dedicated to improving the health and well-being of children and their families affected by childhood illness and disease.

Proud of our long history, our primary focus has been to support Ireland's pediatric research in Children’s Health Ireland. Through the continued generosity of our donors, we have been able to not only ensure the highest standard of care for Ireland's sickest children, but also to fund the work of world-leading scientists to better understand serious illnesses, so they can be more quickly diagnosed, more effectively treatment and even cured.

A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the Foundation is based in Manhattan and is affiliated with The Children's Health Foundation in Ireland.
