About our Organisation
For many years, paediatric healthcare in Ireland has been delivered through a combination of services at three paediatric hospitals (Temple Street, Crumlin and Tallaght). The Children’s Health Bill 2018 saw the formation of Children’s Health Ireland and this new company took over responsibility for the three existing hospitals from 1st January 2019.
Aligned with this change in paediatric healthcare in Ireland, the three fundraising foundations associated with each of the hospitals, Temple Street Foundation (TSF) and The Children’s Medical and Research Foundation Crumlin (CMRF) agreed that it would be best to come together to form a new foundation, Children’s Health Foundation (CHF). In time the National Children’s Hospital Foundation Tallaght (NCHF) will also join CHF.
CHF is focused specifically on children’s and adolescent health needs in the new healthcare system in Ireland (CHI), including patient and parent supports, new service developments, research and innovation, infrastructure and vital life-saving equipment.

About Our Organisation
Children’s Health Foundation (CHF) is focused on raising funds to support the delivery of services for children’s and adolescent health needs in the new healthcare system in Ireland (CHI), including research and innovation, patient and parent support, infrastructure and equipment and any other health services associated with CHI. Children’s Health Foundation will continue to support existing sites, and honour commitments made, until all services are relocated to the new children’s hospital on the St. James Hospital campus.
The creation of Children’s Health Foundation in 2019 brought together the existing Temple Street Foundation and The Children’s Medical and Research Foundation Crumlin to continue to support Ireland’s sickest children in their treatment journey today, tomorrow and into the future.
This is an incredible opportunity to be part of the team who raise vital, life-saving funds and support some 300,000 children and their families who attend CHI each year in need of world-class paediatric care; ensuring that patients have access to the very highest standards of care, world-class facilities and the most up-to-date research that will change young lives for the better.
