Dell Children's Trust

Dell Children’s Trust

Dell Children’s Trust members are volunteers who leverage their collaborative giving to create impact. Departments and programs within Dell Children’s apply for support and Trust members vote to direct their pooled funds after learning about the front line care needed for children in Central Texas. Additionally, understanding that some services at Dell Children’s are not billable, Dell Children’s Trust also hosts an annual fundraiser specifically earmarked for the Child Life Art and Music Therapy Program, namely the Art of Giving.

As a group, Dell Children’s Trust has granted over $4,426,972.14 through membership dues and special projects ($3,143,577.14) and Art of Giving ($1,283,395.00). Additionally, Children’s Trust members have been inspired to personally provide philanthropic support to Dell Children’s in excess of over 7 million dollars (outside of Children’s Trust grants).

As a member of the Dell Children’s Trust you will enjoy exclusive educational and social events including:

  • Dine Around and Recruitment Party, November 2nd, 2023 at Alamo Drafthouse, South Lamar: Enjoy dinner and drinks and the big screen with three guest Dell Children’s physician speakers.
  • Art of Giving, Sunday, April 7, 2024: Trust family event at Dell Children’s hospital where patients and local artists create one of a kind artwork to benefit the Child Life Art and Music Therapy Program. This art-centered, family friendly event also teaches children the art of giving back. More information here (event details to come)
  • The Give Dinner, Thursday, May 2, 2024 at Austin Country Club: our signature event – the culmination of our year together. Hear from physician grant applicants over dinner and then cast your vote on where to direct our pool of philanthropic dollars.
  • Giver Gallery June 6th, 2024 at West Chelsea Contemporary Gallery: for Art of Giving sponsors, artists and Trust members. Final art from the Art of Giving is hung in a private gallery for an evening of celebration as artists reveal their inspired creations to sponsors who take their pieces home.
