A Journey Begun in Love and Hope — Shaping a Brighter Future for Every Child

The Gambino Medical and Science Foundation’s journey began in 1990, sparked by the personal contribution of founders, Thomas and Frances Gambino. Their initial act of generosity laid the foundation for a cause dedicated to supporting children battling life-threatening illnesses.

Their vision, fueled by compassion and hope, has grown over the years into a powerful force that continues to change lives.

About Our Programs

At the Gambino Medical and Science Foundation we are dedicated to fostering an environment of hope, instilling courage, and building resilience in the hearts of the children we serve. Our mission is powered by the generous hearts of our donors, whose contributions have helped us raise millions of dollars for the Cohen Children’s Medical Center of Northwell Health (CCMC).

Recognized as the largest provider of pediatric medical care in New York State, CCMC has consistently ranked among the country’s best children’s hospitals by U.S. News & World Report since 2007. It is our honor to offer our donors and supporters the chance to fund critical pediatric services that deliver exceptional, compassionate care in a comforting and inviting environment.

Guided by the insightful leadership team and skilled physicians at CCMC, we’ve been able to support a range of specific programs including:
