An Alameda County Children's Hospital parcel tax, Measure A ballot question was on the February 5, 2008 countywide ballot in Alameda County, where it was defeated.

If Measure A had been approved, it would have resulted in the levy of a parcel tax on properties in the county in order to fund grants to the Children's Hospital and Research Center in Oakland for "the construction, expansion, remodeling, renovation, furnishing and equipping projects."

A 2/3rds supermajority vote was required for approval.

Measure B, a different parcel tax measure that also would have generated revenue through a parcel tax levy to support the hospital, was on the same ballot. It also failed.
