Ways to donate

Let us shop for you:

  • Make an online monetary donation to our Children's of Mississippi Family Assistance Fund, this fund is used to help our patient families at vulnerable times cover transportation and lodging costs, provide assistance with purchasing prescription medication, and sometimes helps to provide meals.
  • Make an online monetary donation to our Child Life Fund, for some kids, just being inside a hospital can make them feel afraid or anxious. The normal act of playing can help children and teens cope with hospital stays and medical treatments. This fund is used to provide our sweet patients with needed items for therapeutic play, giving them positive outlets to express their feelings.

Do the shopping yourself:
