So Many Ways to Give
Wellstar Foundation relies on contributions from community members, corporations, foundations and philanthropic organizations to help our community get well, live well and stay well.

We are very grateful to the donors and volunteers who have joined us in our mission of making world-class healthcare available to everyone, everywhere. It is through generous donations we are able to enhance our facilities, expand research opportunities, host community programs, provide team member assistance and deliver compassionate patient-centered care utilizing the best medical technology available.
Planned giving is an excellent way to meet your family’s financial planning goals while supporting world-class healthcare through a will bequest, trust, charitable gift annuity or life insurance policy. Not only does your gift help us fund life-saving programs and services, in many cases, but it can also provide you with useful income and tax benefits.
