One Wish Grants
If you had one wish to solve pediatric healthcare’s greatest challenges, what would It be?
At CHOC, we support a culture of innovation that not only encourages our employees and physicians to dream up life-changing ideas but also supports their development into fully functional programs.
Founded by the CHOC Foundation and its Board of Directors, One Wish Grants turn these wishes into reality by awarding funding to exceptional projects, ranging from $5,000 to $250,000. Innovator teams go through a rigorous pitch competition, where they present their ideas to a selection committee.
“We have these huge ideas, and we know ways that we can make a positive impact at CHOC…One Wish Grants gives the opportunity to make something happen and come to life when often the barrier is money.”
– Jazmine Bustos, Nurse Practitioner 2018 One Wish Grants Winner for the Multidisciplinary Feeding Program Research Collaborative Team
