Friends of Schneider Children's is an association of friends which has been active on behalf of the hospital since 1992. It was founded in order to provide wide-ranging support for the hospital and to promote community awareness about its activities and the needs of the sick child.
Over the years, Friends of Schneider Children's has held a variety of fundraising events in Israel to assist in the acquisition of essential equipment, the funding of special projects and research grants. It has also assisted the development of departments in the hospital, specifically the Intensive Care Unit, Neurosurgery, Urology, Otolaryngology as well as others.
