As a not-for-profit hospital, Shepherd Center relies on generous philanthropic support from the individuals, families, corporations and foundations.
Donations help fund patient care programs, patient equipment, family housing, special and capital projects, technological advances and educational programs.
You can contribute in a variety of ways:
A gift of cash in support of Shepherd Center is the easiest way to give. Your gift to the Shepherd Center Foundation is tax-deductible, as allowed by law. We will send you an acknowledgment letter for your tax records. If your company has a matching gift program, the gift can be doubled in value. For more information, call 404-350-7306 or email Dean Melcher.
