Friends of Doernbecher is a volunteer organization.



The doctors and nurses at Doernbecher Children's Hospital are committed to helping kids. But they can't do it alone. People in our community must help too. Friends of Doernbecher was formed, so that individuals like you could get involved helping the children and families who need Doernbecher. We believe that every child deserves premier medical care, irrespective of their ability to pay.

Friends of Doernbecher is a volunteer organization, dedicated to the long-term support of the hospital. Together, Friends of Doernbecher chapters have raised millions of dollars over the last decade to help build our shining new hospital and to support critical programs. Our members come from all sorts of backgrounds. Many are former patients, their families and friends, and many more are individuals who just want to help make a difference.

If you would like to help support Oswego Friends of Doernbecher in our efforts to raise money to help these children and become a sponsor, please let us know.
