The Congenital Heart Defect Coalition is a nonprofit organization whose sole purpose is to improve the quality of life for all affected by congenital heart defects (CHDs). The three main pillars of our mission are focused on uniting and supporting the CHD community, increasing public awareness, and raising money for lifesaving research. A significant differentiator between us and similar organizations is our commitment to research, which offers an enormous impact on the long-term quality of life for children and young adults born with a heart defect.
All money raised goes directly to our combined mission. The organization is run by a collaboration of parents of children born with a CHD, CHD Survivors, pediatric cardiologists and nurses, and caring individuals dedicated to our cause.
Founded in 2011, the Congenital Heart Defect Coalition is headquartered in northern New Jersey, but our support network is not restricted to the NJ/NY area. Our affiliate organizations share our mission, and through this extended network, we will have a positive influence on the lives of individuals across the nation. Please contact us if you are interested in starting a local chapter.
