Corporate Sponsors of the International Children's Heart Foundation

The following corporations generously provide us with critical medical supplies, services, and funding. Pediatric open-heart surgery is highly dependent upon the technology and materials provided by these companies. Without their support, which amounts to hundreds of thousands of dollars, we simply could not operate. These companies are literally saving lives of children throughout the world.

FedEx has been an incredible corporate friend to ICHF.  In preparation for each mission, FedEx ships all of our supplies to the country for us.  This often amounts to 200 or more boxes of medicine, surgical supplies, and monitors.  Without this, we could not operate.


Northwest Airlines frequently donate airline tickets to us or give us discount tickets, and they let us carry extra luggage (surgical instruments and medicine) for free.

Sanofi-Synthelabo, Inc. provides us with Primacor, an invaluable heart medication, for each mission.


Medtronic Foundation has provided significant grants to ICHF.

Eli Lilly & Company provides invaluable heart drugs and antibiotics for our missions.

The International Children's Heart Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 charitable organization based in Memphis, Tennessee. We are dedicated to helping children with congenital or acquired heart disease in developing countries throughout the world. We serve all children without respect to their race, religion or sex. Our primary goal is to make ourselves obsolete in the countries that we serve. To this end, we strive to educate the health care professionals in the countries we travel and bring them to the United States for advanced study so that they may better serve their own children.
