Partnership for Children

Mission

Partnership for Children increases access to medical care for children with serious illnesses and supports their families.

The Big Idea

Partnership for Children provides transportation to crucial medical care for children living with serious illness. Now that hospitals are reopening for non-Covid-19 treatment and care, demand for transportation services has grown as children are making up for missed appointments. Beyond that, with the pandemic-related loss of employment for many parents, financial difficulties have resulted in missed rent payments and not enough food. Partnership for Children is working with community partners to provide safety net services for families to maintain health, safety and basic needs, while still getting sick children to their appointments.

Partnership for Children has been such a huge help for our family. When my son has local doctor appointments and I can drive him, they help us with gas because it all adds up. When he has appointments at Stanford and I can't drive him because it's so far, they give us rides. We know we can always depend on them. In these difficult times, they helped my family with rent and also provided my family with food. We are so grateful to have them in our lives.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
