Endowed Chairs

Endowed Chairs are a generous commitment by a donor that enables the hospital to attract and retain the best specialists in a field of pediatric medicine. A named chair is a prestigious honor accorded by Children’s Colorado and is reserved for the most distinguished scientists, clinicians, academicians and leaders. An endowed chair recognizes and promotes excellence in pediatric health care and signifies the hospital’s commitment and a donor’s interest to support that work for the long term.

Endowed Chairs may be established with a gift of $2.5 million or more.
