About Leaders For Kids

Leaders for Kids is an advisory board created to support the charitable work of Children’s Hospital of Michigan Foundation. This organization of emerging leaders from southeast Michigan is passionate about the health and wellness of children in the region.

Healthier Children

Provide access to programs, supportive services, and education to help improve the health of children.

Prevent Injuries

Support programs that teach children and families how to stay safe and healthy.

Support Families

Help families manage the impact of illnesses and injuries and deal with emergency needs that result from having critically ill children.

Life-Saving Research

Support research to advance the development of new techniques in pediatric medical care and the treatment of diseases.

Medical Education

Help ensure that physicians and healthcare staff receive the most advanced training to enhance their ability to provide cutting-edge care for children in our community.

Happier Children

Hospital stays and procedures are tough to endure. The Foundation helps to provide toys, games, books, and activities that help alleviate these stressful times in a child's life.

Why Support Us?

Our vision is to improve children's health and wellness so children have MORE DAYS TO PLAY, NIGHTS TO DREAM AND TIME TO JUST BE KIDS.


The Foundation’s critical mission is to raise funds for the pediatric medical research and education, community benefit programs and sponsor community events on key issues that advance the health of children in Southeast Michigan.


The pediatric research conducted at the hospital, Wayne State University and through independent research grant opportunities gives this initiative national and global reach.

Our Team

The board members of LFK serve as ambassadors, raising awareness of the Foundation’s critical mission and by raising money for pediatric medical research, medical education and community benefit programs that advance the health and wellness of children in the Detroit area.
