Ollie was born on November 28th and we loved him as hard as we could for 13 months. While he may be gone, that immense love is not. Ollie’s legacy is about being courageous and innovative to lead change. Our love for one little boy combined with the generosity of our donors, has enabled us to create a community that has changed the lives of thousands of individuals.

Join us in honoring and celebrating Ollie during the month of November during our Fall Campaign, Ollie Gives Back. Together, we will ease the traumas endured by heart families and transform the future of pediatric heart care.

November 1 – November 29 (Giving Tuesday)


Our annual fall campaign, Ollie Gives Back, culminates on Giving Tuesday — a 24-hour global movement that reimagines and promotes a world built upon shared humanity and generosity.

Since Giving Tuesday’s inception in 2012, it has grown into a year-round event that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and spread love.

    The IRS classifies cryptocurrencies as property, so cryptocurrency donations to 501(c)3 charities receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. Please contact your tax or financial advisor for more information and to determine your exact tax benefits.

  • A gift of stock may help you avoid capital gains tax while helping heart families. Consult with your financial and tax advisor to determine what stock is best for you to donate. Those interested in making gifts of stock should contact info@theohhf.org to obtain DTC instructions.

  • An easy way to give funds you have set aside for charitable purposes is to recommend a gift through your donor-advised fund.

  • Many donors have found a direct transfer of funds from their IRA to be a great way to contribute. Contact your IRA administrator for more information.

  • Including a gift for Ollie Hinkle Heart Foundation in your will or beneficiary designation will provide future generations of heart families the love and support they need.

  • Many employers offer payroll deduction opportunities for easy giving. Contact your HR department to find out how you can give at work to OHHF.

  • Matching gift programs are offered by many companies for not only employee gifts, but potentially gifts made by employees’ spouses and retirees. Check to see if your company offers these programs. For questions about submitting a matching gift request, please contact us at info@theohhf.org.

Riley’s Story

Riley was born with tetralogy of Fallot with pulmonary stenosis and complete heart block. He underwent his first open heart surgery at just two months old to repair his heart and a few weeks later had a cardiac pacemaker placed. Since then he has had his pacemaker replaced twice, once after coding in the hospital, and will need additional replacements as he grows.

Riley is happy and healthy living at home with his amazing grandmother, Tracy, and enjoys playing catch, singing and working on PT and OT with Missouri First Steps.

Stella’s Story

Stella was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS) in December 2015 – a CHD that meant she would only have half a working heart and need a series of three surgeries to reconstruct her heart’s anatomy. She underwent her first open heart surgery when she was only two days old, and then additional surgeries at four months old and three years old. Thankfully her gifted surgeons were able to create a stable heart for Stella and she has been the light of her family’s life ever since!

Today Stella is a spunky and smiley five year old that brightens the day of everyone she meets.

Evie’s Story

Evie was born at twenty weeks with hypoplastic right heart syndrome. Her surgeons had planned a series of three surgeries to repair her heart, but unfortunately at birth they discovered her coronaries were missing or abnormal. At one week old, Evie was listed for a heart transplant. While waiting for her hero heart, she was placed on ECMO. At eight weeks old she was blessed with a second chance at life and received a heart transplant!

After eighty-two days inpatient, Evie went home for the first time where her parents are able to enjoy their happy and healthy baby girl.

Emmalyn’s Story

Emmalyn is a year and a half old and was born with Transposition of the Great Arteries (TGA). She had her first surgery at four days old and then again at nine days old. She has since had two angioplasties.

Diego’s Story

Meet Diego, a 14-year-old heart warrior with Hypoplastic Left Heart Syndrome. He has endured multiple surgeries that rerouted his blood flow to maximize his heart’s function. These procedures have been so effective that he has been cleared to play sports and leads a life without constraints.

Diego is an active teen who loves flag football, video games, dad jokes, and walking his dog. His laugh is infectious and always brings an energy and joy that lights up any room. He is the oldest of two brothers, and despite the typical sibling rivalry, he enjoys hanging out with his younger brother and playing video games.
