Ways to donate

Let us shop for you:

  • Make an online monetary donation to our Growing Campaign. Children’s of Mississippi has launched a capital campaign to fund dramatic enhancements to the state’s only hospital for children, to help every child in Mississippi reach their full potential. The modern medical advances taking place every day at Children’s have outgrown the current hospital, which was not designed to support the level of care Children’s now provides. The Growing campaign will fund the construction of a new hospital building and a dramatic renovation of the existing space. The new facilities will support Children’s of Mississippi world-class doctors and staff and the already excellent level of care they provide. Most importantly, this project will help save the lives and improve the health of Mississippi’s children. Growing. So they can grow.
