Dayton Children’s Hospital Foundation establishes COVID-19 emergency response fund

First $100,000 in donations to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from Chuck Berry, a generous philanthropist in Dayton.  

Today, Dayton Children’s Hospital Foundation announced the launch of a new COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund. This special fund will offset the unexpected expenses from the national pandemic and will ensure care teams have the tools and resources they need to continue caring for kids.

The first $100,000 in donations to the COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from Chuck Berry, a generous philanthropist in Dayton.  

“We are living in very trying times. The coronavirus has brought our lives to a near standstill in a way we’ve not seen before,” said Debbie Feldman, president and CEO of Dayton Children’s Hospital. “Even so, the generous spirit of our community is still thriving. Through this fund and the kindness of our donors, we’ll be able to continue caring for kids the way only Dayton Children’s can.” 

Many resources are needed to respond to the pandemic, including specialized supplies, medical tests, expert care, and technology. Money raised will allow Dayton Children’s to respond to the most urgent needs as they arise.
