The Children's Heart Foundation is the nation's leading organization dedicated solely to the funding of congenital heart defect (CHD) research. CHF's mission is to fund the most promising research to advance the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of CHDs.

 Since 1996, CHF has funded more than $11.1 million in CHD research across 103 projects. Our funded research grants, typically between $50,000 and $100,000 have contributed to important achievements, including helping to lower the incidence and mortality rates for those born with heart defects, to more effectively diagnosis CHDs for pre-natal care and post-natal interventions, and to support pioneering procedures and treatment breakthroughs to improve longevity and quality of life for CHD patients. Because of research, death rates from CHDs in the United States have declined by 37.5% since 1999.
