Benefiting Nationwide Children’s Hospital
Nationwide is proud to be a founding partner of the Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship. Since the tournament’s inception in 2007, the tournament has raised over $13 million benefitting pediatric cancer research and treatment at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and supporting the hospital’s mission to provide world-class care to every child, regardless of the family’s ability to pay.
In 2006, the Nationwide Foundation pledged its largest gift in its history, granting $50 million to the hospital, and over the last six years, gifted the hospital with an additional $60 million in grants to establish and support the Nationwide Foundation Pediatric Innovation Fund at Nationwide Children’s Hospital.
At Nationwide, we pride ourselves on giving back to the communities in which we live and work. Making a difference in the lives of children and their families is something that we've held most important since our beginnings in 1926. Learn more about the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship.
