Most of KidsHealth's funding comes from Nemours, one the nation's largest nonprofits dedicated to children's health care, research, advocacy, and education. Additional support through partnerships with children's health care providers, corporations, foundations, and other groups that support the mission of KidsHealth — as well as individual donors — helps to fund additional KidsHealth educational programs for families.
