Today's and Tomorrow's Children Fund (TTCF) was born out of the belief that, by pooling their donations, a group of committed individuals can award a major gift every year to make an important difference in the work of talented UCLA pediatrics faculty members, whose cutting-edge research benefits the boys and girls at Mattel Children's Hospital UCLA. TTCF had 67 members in 2012, each committing $5,000 or more. As a result, $348,000 was directed to three members of the pediatrics faculty. Since its inception in 2006, TTCF has raised more than $1.5 million to fund 13 innovative research projects.
