What We Do

The Congenital Heart Defect (CHD) Coalition is a volunteer-based nonprofit organization devoted to improving the quality of life for children and adults affected by CHD—the #1 birth defect worldwide and leading cause of infant death in the United States.

Our mission is to:

  • Unite and support the CHD community
  • Increase public awareness
  • Raise money for lifesaving medical research

From hospital recommendations to a shoulder to lean on, we offer community resources and a chance to build lifelong friendships. Together, we are united to make a change and become the greatest advocates for those affected by CHD.

Help us make a difference

We lead fundraisers, connect with hospitals, and spread the message of hope—but we can’t do it without the generous support of people like you. By donating or volunteering, you can change the lives of families and children across the globe.
