Support Our Efforts
Ready to help? The Little Giraffe Foundation is a growing organization looking for volunteers and donors to help support our efforts.
Make a Donation
Our primary goal is funding medical research focused on neonatal development within a NICU environment. There are a number of doctors and nurses working on cutting edge research, but in order to further this work, adequate funding is needed for staff, equipment, and lab work. The Little Giraffe Foundation is working to partner with research institutions across the country to coordinate Neonatal research and communication across the NICU community.
You can become a part of these efforts by making a donation. Checks can be made payable to the Little Giraffe Foundation or use our Paypal donation tool located on the right side of this page.

One of the missions of the Little Giraffe Foundation is to support families with babies in the NICU. During the holidays, we offer gift bags that include books and toys to let them know someone is thinking of them. Since our foundation's inception, we have delivered over 9,500 of these such gifts to several Chicagoland hospitals. For the upcoming holiday season we will be reaching 13 local area hospitals.
