Since 1933, we have supported outstanding healthcare and cutting-edge research at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, funding over eight endowments and quietly raising over 55 million dollars.
“Visiting Children’s Hospital allows me to appreciate the full impact of our efforts. This a place where miracles can and do happen on a daily basis”
“We were honored to be a debutante family and contribute to the important work the members of Las Madrinas do for CHLA.”
“Las Madrinas’ legacy of generosity is unmatched in Los Angeles and we are eternally grateful for their invaluable support.”
Our Current Endowment
$5 Million Project
The Las Madrinas Endowment for Diagnostic Innovation supports the transformational work conducted by the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles. Overseen by Alexander Judkins, MD, Chair of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine and Executive Director of the Center for Personalized Medicine, a team of nearly 275 faculty, physicians, laboratorians and researchers will work to develop a new generation of tests used to diagnose and care for children with leukemia and other types of cancer. These tests will help detect disease earlier, determine which therapies may be most effective and guide decisions that minimize the long-term side effects of treatments.
