ChildServe Named #3 Most Influential Nonprofit

ChildServe was recently named one of the most influential nonprofits in Des Moines—earning the number three spot on the list of Top 25 Most Influential Nonprofits in the Business Record’s 2023 Book of Lists. The award marks the seventh consecutive year ChildServe earned recognition from the Business Record for its influence as a nonprofit in Greater Des Moines.

Placement on the Most Influential Nonprofit list is based on an online survey of Business Record readers. Earning a spot in the top six provides multiple reasons to celebrate the teams and individuals fueling ChildServe’s impact on our community.

“It is a tremendous honor for ChildServe to be named number three Most Influential Nonprofit in the Business Record’s 2023 Books of lists,” said Teri Wahlig, M.D., ChildServe CEO. “As we work to fulfill our vision to transform lives through pediatric healthcare, we know each of our lives are also being transformed in the process. Collectively, the families we serve, our team members, board members, generous donors, volunteers and community partners are all working together to help children with special healthcare needs live a great life. We’re so thankful for this community of supporters who believe in the spirit of a child the way we do.”
