Nationwide was founded on the principal of protecting what’s most important to people. And we believe in giving back to the communities we serve. So, partnering with an organization focused on protecting the health and potential of children was a natural fit. For more than 60 years now, Nationwide has been working with Nationwide Children’s Hospital to help ensure that every child has access to quality medical care.
To that end, the Nationwide Foundation committed $50 million to Columbus Children's Hospital in 2006. And in 2014, gifted the hospital an additional $10 million grant to establish the Nationwide Pediatric Innovation Fund.
In addition, our sports sponsorships helped raise an additional $3.2 million for the hospital in 2013.
