The Peter Pan Birthday Club

Supporting the idea that “you don’t have to be grown up to give,” the Peter Pan Birthday Club is designed to show children that the joy of giving can be the greatest gift of all. Flagler Health Care Foundation has partnered with the Peter Pan Children’s Fund to start the program, and all donations made through the club will go directly to Flagler Hospital, providing funds for the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Pediatric Program.
All expectant parents hope for a full-term, healthy baby, but sometimes complications arise. The focus of the NICU at Flagler Hospital is to meet the needs of the entire family in a supportive environment. The fund helps the NICU team meet those needs.
The mission of the Peter Pan Children’s Fund is to educate young people about philanthropy and celebrate their success. In 1992, a young girl named Julia Hart decided to give up birthday presents and raise money for a children’s hospital. Her generous gesture would later inspire other young people to become philanthropists. This was the beginning of the Peter Pan Children’s Fund. Today, hospitals all across the world benefit from children who have chosen to give, rather than receive, on their birthdays.
