    Mission Statement

    Since its establishment in 1989, the Children's Medical Fund has sought to provide medical assistance to critically ill Greek, Greek American and Orthodox children, whose families are unable to afford appropriate and necessary medical treatment. The Fund also provides grants for innovative research programs to pediatric hospitals throughout the United States and to organizations with special programs that care for children with critical and life threatening illnesses.

    History and Grant Distribution

    The Children's Medical Fund Luncheon began as the Cancer Fund Luncheon in 1989 at the Waldorf Astoria in New York City and was followed by a second Cancer Fund Luncheon in 1990. These successful events provided  funds for Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, for the Greek Children's Cancer Fund and for the Kids-n-Cancer program. In 1991, this event  was officially named the Children's Medical Fund Luncheon, and it became a biennial event hosted on a rotating basis within the Direct Archdiocesan District and eight Metropolises of the Archdiocese.

    Since its inception, the National Philoptochos has raised approximately $3.3 million for the Children's Medical Fund and has awarded over $2.8 million  in grants to hospitals and organizations.  The remaining funds have been disbursed for children in need through grants handled by the Social Services department at the National Philoptochos office.
