Our Mission

HeartGift provides lifesaving heart surgery to children from around the world where specialized medical treatment is either scarce or nonexistent.

 

HeartGift Foundation is a nonprofit organization that brings children from around the world for free surgery to correct life-threatening congenital heart defects. Established in 2000, HeartGift began its work in Austin, Texas and now has chapters in multiple cities. Since its founding, HeartGift has treated more than 200 children from over 30 countries.

Nearly one out of 100 children is affected by a congenital heart defect. Many children in developing nations are never diagnosed, never undergo life-saving surgery, and will not survive to see their first birthday. The children that HeartGift sponsors come for surgery because their home countries lack adequate health care. They leave with repaired hearts and a new sense of hope for the future.

You can give the gift of life and help provide critical heart surgery for these children by donating your time and money. HeartGift exists because of individuals, and with your support we will continue to save lives, one HeartGift at a time.
