WHAS Crusade for Children

America’s most successful local telethon!
The Crusade helps children in all Kentucky counties!

Our Mission:
The WHAS Crusade for Children improves the future of children with special needs by inspiring people to give and awarding grants.

100% for the kids!
One hundred percent of every donation made in Kentucky stays in Kentucky to help schools, hospitals, and agencies that provide direct services to children with special needs.

Change a child’s life!
The Crusade has granted over $170 million and helped millions of children.

Every penny counts!
The Crusade’s annual average donations of $5 million are only able to fund one-third of the up to $15 million in grant requests from Kentucky schools, hospitals and agencies.
