What is Blue Peaks Giving Circle? 

Blue Peaks Giving Circle is an annual giving circle made up of members who leverage their collaborative giving to create impact. Departments and programs within Cook Children’s apply for support and members vote to direct their pooled funds after learning about the front-line care needed for our patients.  To learn more about Blue Peaks Giving Circle, click here.

Guidelines for 2022-23 Grants from Blue Peaks Giving Circle 

Blue Peaks Giving Circle’s goal is to fund innovative projects with a high potential for results that will have clinical application and impact at the end of the grant period. 

Pilot projects that demonstrate feasibility, proof of concept, or contain plans to launch a new program or initiative that otherwise would not be funded, are encouraged. A plan for sustainability of all proposed programs/projects after the grant period must be defined.
