About our Donors
We are so grateful to each and every donor that has helped to make El Paso Children's Hospital a unique healing environment. Last year alone, we were blessed with over 11,998 donations. And that doesn't even include the 500,000 people who said "Yes" and donated a dollar at a time through a Children's Miracle Network balloon campaign. We are fortunate to know and work with many of you through campaign pledges, annual events, service projects and community third party events benefiting El Paso Children's Hospital.
Mission driven philanthropy. Gifts at work.
Know that every dollar you give stays right here in El Paso to support the programs and services at El Paso Children's Hospital.
The Milagro Campaign is a naming rights campaign that allows individuals, families, companies, community organizations or foundations to name a specific room, floor or program.
Milagro Campaign pledges support major programs and initiatives and provide a welcoming note of "We are here for you!" over the years as family after family bring their hopes of a healthy life for their child through the door of each room.
Pledges can be made all at once or, depending on the amount, spread over several years. Anyone who places their name on an area in the hospital also receives their name on the main donor recognition area for "Miracle Makers" in the main corridor of the shared Lobby.

First held in 2011, while El Paso Children's was still under construction, the first Milagro Gala headlined by Edward James Olmos maxed out the Camino Real Ballroom with over 750 attendees.
Moved to the El Paso Convention Center in 2012 with featured speaker America Ferrara, the event has seen continued growth.
Over 1000 enthusiastic attendees greeted featured speaker Dan Rather in 2013. And when 2014 scheduled featured speaker Maya Angelou fell ill two days before Gala, Jane Seymour graciously stepped in to the delight of the more 1100 attendees who raised over $200,000 to benefit El Paso Children's. A true Gala, this signature formal event continues to grow though attendance, sponsorships, a unique Silent Auction and a Live Auction featuring a real auctioneer.
Children's Miracle Network Balloon Campaigns
Sometimes the most meaningful acts are the simple ones. Over 500,000 El Pasoans each year say "Yes!" to their favorite casher at Sam's, Walmarts, Costco, Walgreens, The Corner Store and hundreds of other locations. All those dollars add up to big dollars. Children's Miracle Network has contributed over $2 million dollars in equpment and services to El Paso Children's Hospital.
Everywhere you see this CMN balloon icon you can know that CMN donations, often a $1 a time made it happen.
