Save A Heart 2024

Create a Fundraiser



Nearly 1 in 110 babies are born with congenital heart disease, making it the No. 1 birth defect in the country. And it’s a diagnosis that requires lifelong care.

The Congenital Heart Center (CHC) at the University of Michigan Health C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital is one of the largest and most experienced pediatric heart programs in the U.S. It is also an international referral center for kids with complex congenital heart disease.


Our Congenital Heart Center is committed to advancing research, inspiring clinical innovation, and providing assistance to families facing devastating heart conditions.

From February 1-28, 2024, we are raising awareness and funds through our Save A Heart campaign. Donations made during this time will support areas with the most critical needs in the CHC. Our goal is to fund important research, drive the development of new technologies and therapies, and provide social work and support programs to families.

Congenital Heart Defect Awareness Week occurs in February and promotes education and understanding of heart defects. Save A Heart overlaps with these national efforts and helps to rally public support to advance congenital heart care.

Thanks to the Attwood Family Foundation, each gift will be matched dollar-to-dollar up to $15,000. 


To give kids with heart defects the best life possible, we hope you’ll consider joining the cause. Contact to learn about the following ways you can get involved:
