Extraordinary Giving Provides Support for Children in Need

Molly Blank at the groundbreaking of the Molly Blank Conference Center at National Jewish Health in 2001.Molly Blank was a champion for the less fortunate. A donor to National Jewish Health for more than 25 years, she helped countless National Jewish Health patients through the Molly Blank Fund for the Care of Children in Need. She also donated the lead $1 million gift to help build the Molly Blank Conference Center at National Jewish Health. 

After Blank’s death in 2015, her sons, Arthur and Michael, established The Molly Blank Fund of The Arthur M. Blank Family Foundation to continue her legacy and support the causes she valued most. In 2016, the fund donated an extraordinary $7 million to establish the Molly Blank Pediatric Care Fund, which will help ensure that all pediatric patients receive the care they need, regardless of their families’ ability to pay. Their remarkable gift continues the family’s enduring dedication to the National Jewish Health mission of caring for those in need.

“My brother, Arthur, and I believe that this investment from the Molly Blank Fund reflects our mother’s deep commitment to children, as well as her appreciation for the wonderful work that National Jewish Health does to provide the highest level of care to everyone, regardless of their economic circumstances,” said Michael Blank.
