Thank you for your interest in getting more involved with the Blalock Taussig Thomas Pediatric and Congenital Heart Center at Johns Hopkins Children’s Center.
As the birthplace of modern pediatric cardiology, our mission is to provide the best comprehensive care to patients experiencing complex congenital cardiac conditions. Philanthropy plays a crucial role in that mission by providing seed funding for research, funding for the best educational resources to train a future generation of pediatric cardiologists, and additional support services for families receiving treatment that are not covered by insurance.

When you make a gift to the BTT Heart Center, you help us continue to provide an environment of hope and compassion for patients with cardiac conditions and their families. Your generosity helps us to foster innovative research techniques to improve care for patients, train the future generation of pediatric cardiologists, and provide world class clinical care and emotional support for each patient we treat. Each donation, regardless of size, makes a difference for our care providers, patients, and families.
