Ways To Give

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.

Help MUSC Children's Hospital Offer the Best Care for Kids in Critical Program Areas

Caring for children and their families is our passion. Our goal is to expand this skilled and passionate care through focused growth in key programs.

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.

Importance of Endowments

  • 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.

Holiday Cards

Every year some of our talented patients contribute their beautiful artwork for holiday cards. You can show your support by purchasing this year's cards. Your purchase helps ensure a brighter future for the children of South Carolina. Stay tuned for fabulous new collection to be available for purchase in the Fall.
