Make a difference in a child's life

About Us

Children on the Rise was founded in 2017 by Mr. Domenic and Mrs. Claudia Ieraci with the vision to contribute to the expansion of the Sick Kids Hospital, making the Sick Kids exceptional pediatric health care more accessible.

Children on the Rise is directed by a passionate and driven committee, a committee that is inspired to make a difference in the lives of children. Through philanthropist acts our mission is to raise $1,000,000 by 2025.

These core values shape COTR Committee:

  • We Are Hopeful
  • We Dream Big
  • We Are Innovative
  • We Uphold the Highest Level of Integrity

It is with these core values that drives Children On The Rise to making a difference in a child’s life.

Our goal this year, for 2019, is to raise $75,000.

One of our core values is to Dream Big, so our 8-year goal is to raise $1,000,000.
