UC Davis’ Child Life and Creative Arts Therapy department helps foster the continued growth and development of children impacted by life altering challenges such as hospitalization, illness, injury, trauma, loss and bereavement. Through developmentally appropriate interventions, the specially trained staff focus on the child’s emotional wellbeing by offering tools for self-expression, education and play.

Your gift will be used to purchase supplies such as education and art materials, musical instruments and toys to support children impacted by these experiences. Funds are also used to provide play materials for use at each child’s bedside and activities for the teen and children play spaces throughout the hospital.

TO MAKE A GIFT BY MAIL please make check payable to UC Davis Foundation and mail to UC Davis Advancement Services 202 Cousteau place, Suite 185 Davis, CA 95618. In the memo line of the check, please indicate the gift is to support the Child Life Program.
