    Step 5: Send your offline donations to CHOP*

    Please fill out our offline donation form and include it with any check or money order donations. Add the participant’s name, team or school you are supporting in the memo line – and mail it to:

    Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
    Attn: Pajama Day
    P.O. Box 781352
    Philadelphia, PA 19178-1352

    *If all your donations were online, skip this step. You’re all set!

You choose how your dollars support CHOP

Where your Pajama Day fundraising dollars go is up to you, whether it’s pediatric research, patient care or a specific area within CHOP. Please also specify where you wish your school’s donations to go. Unspecified donations will by default benefit the Children’s Fund to help meet the hospital’s greatest need.
