Kosair Charities: Who we are
Kosair Charities enhances the health and well-being of children by delivering ﬁnancial support for:
HEALTHCARE - RESEARCH - EDUCATION - SOCIAL SERVICES - CHILD ADVOCACY
Since 1923, Kosair Charities has helped children reach their potential while overcoming their obstacles. Opening as a hospital for children who had long-term medical needs, Kosair Charities evolved into a grant-providing organization to better support the changing needs of children in Kentucky and Southern Indiana in the 1980s.
Today, Kosair Charities enhances the lives of all children in need through organizational grants, direct ﬁnancial assistance, the Face It Movement, and one-of-a-kind experiences.
