Giving to MUSC Children's Health
MUSC Children's Health would not be the successful pediatric health care organization it is today without the generous support of so many individuals, groups and businesses. Through generous donations of time, funds, goods and services our facility remains a thriving, growing and caring institution, built by and for our community.
If you are interested in contributing to MUSC Children's Health this section of our website will provide you with information on the variety of ways you can help.
Whether you are interested in:
- Making a financial contribution to help us purchase needed medical equipment or build our state-of-the-art research facility
- Donating your time through volunteering at an event, or becoming a regular volunteer
- Participating in one of our special events or fundraising events
You are helping us provide the most comprehensive pediatric care in South Carolina and making a difference for our children.
How to Help MUSC Children’s Hospital
Help MUSC Children's Hospital to Always Be Ready
An unrestricted gift is the most flexible and valuable way that donors can support The Children’s Hospital. Such gifts are not made for any particular program or service. Rather, such gifts allow us to be ready to meet a need or capitalize on an opportunity to improve our care for kids. Your gift might help purchase essential new medical equipment, hire or train new staff, or launch a critical new program. Our current priority for unrestricted gifts are for the expansion of pediatric oncology and pediatric nephrology.
Help Support Innovation, Discovery and Research
Research is at the core of Children’s efforts to advance pediatric health across the country. Our goal is long-term investment in recruiting and retaining the nation’s best pediatric researchers; making young investigator awards, pilot grants, bridge grants and research scholar awards; and building the research infrastructure necessary to support our mission of not only providing the best care, but also of discovering cures for today’s and tomorrow’s childhood illnesses.

- The Children's Hospital Fund supports endowments that help ensure the continued excellence of hospital programs by supplementing operating support and allowing innovative programs to grown and excel. When a donor invests in an endowment, the gift supports pediatric clinical programs, research, education and advocacy.
- It is through endowments that MUSC Children’s Hospital is able to attract and retain some of nation’s top medical researchers and physicians to care for the children of South Carolina and the southeast.
Endowments recognize and promote excellence in pediatric medicine and signify the hospital’s commitment to support that work.
- Endowments help achieve breakthrough discoveries through the teaching and research they help support.
When donors give to support an endowment, that gift is preserved, ensuring that your gift will thrive and grow far into the future impacting the lives of children today and for many years to come
The 25th Annual “Kids Helping Kids” Holiday Card Project is a one-of-a-kind way to support the Campaign for MUSC Shawn Jenkins Children’s Hospital and spread holiday cheer! Each year with the help of inspired patients and young friends of the Children’s Hospital, themed artwork is created and displayed on a set of cards that can be customized and purchased during the holiday season. Through the generosity of our supporters one hundred percent of the proceeds from the sale of these cards go directly to benefit research, education and programs at the Children’s Hospital.
If you would like to make a donation to MUSC Children’s Hospital in honor or memorial of someone special we will send a note to the "honoree" letting them know about your generous donation. To make an honor or memorial gift, you can call us at 843-792-2624 or send your contribution to:

The official MUSC Children's Hospital license plate is available through the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles.
You can order your plate by going directly to your local DMV field office or download the order form (MV-95), complete it and send the form to the DMV with a check for $50 (in addition to the regular $24 registration fee). Proceeds from the sale of each license plate will benefit the MUSC Children's Hospital so be sure to order yours today.
Planned gifts, also known as deferred gifts, are those made through estate planning. In most cases, their value passes on to MUSC Children’s Hospital after a specified period of time or after the donor’s death. These gifts may consist of bequests, gift annuities or charitable remainder trusts, to name a few. If you are interested in learning about planning giving options, please contact Barbara Rivers at 843-792-2624
