Women in Philanthropy

Women in Philanthropy seeks annual gifts of $1,000 or more from women who are inspired and empowered to partner with WellStar in pursuit of our vision to deliver world class healthcare.

Invest in your community by supporting WellStar with your gift of stock, real estate or other appreciated assets.


These gifts show your support for WellStar’s mission and may offer you certain tax advantages. Appreciated assets that are given to charity retain 100% of their value, and help you to bypass capital gains tax by having the charity sell the assets. In addition, the gift triggers a charitable income tax deduction that results in actual cash savings to the donor.


Whether your assets are substantial or modest, you can make a difference in the work we do to ensure the patients and families that we serve are provided world-class healthcare.


You can make your gift of stock, real estate or other appreciated assets in three easy steps.
