What if a campaign isn’t fully funded?
We know you’ll work hard on your crowdfunding campaign, and we hope each project is fully funded. In the event a project/campaign goal isn’t reached, all of the funds raised will be directed toward the areas of greatest needs through the Children’s Hospital Colorado Children’s Fund. This fund supports the hospital’s greatest needs and enables the hospital to improve the care offered to every patient we treat.
