Meet Our Campaign Chairs

Never Settle: A Campaign for Kids is chaired by a team of Atlanta area professionals who are dedicated to supporting Children’s and the future generations of children and families who will need our specialty care.

Meet our chairs and learn why they chose to get involved in helping fundraise for Children’s.

With support from our community—especially Atlanta area leaders who believe whole-heartedly in the Mission of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta—we can transform the future of pediatric healthcare across Georgia and beyond.

The men and women who have stepped up to chair Never Settle: A Campaign for Kids are dedicated to helping us build a new hospital for tomorrow that will create more space for patients and families, as well as offer more amenities, greater access to care and some of the most advanced technology available in pediatric medicine.

Their leadership and commitment will help make sure Georgia’s kids have access to the comprehensive care they deserve—and not just today, but for generations to come.

“As a longtime partner of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, Delta Air Lines has witnessed this organization and its team members consistently go the distance for the children and families of Georgia.

"There are many positive attributes that make Atlanta a world-class city. For my family and the thousands of others who call Georgia home, one of the most important and reassuring of these is having access to first-rate pediatric healthcare.
