Ways to Give

The Helen Keller Hospital Foundation provides opportunities for you to give and show you care by a special remembrance. You may designate your gift to be used for a specific purpose, department or in honor or memorial. All gifts are tax deductible.

Helping Heroes Fund

Our new “Helping Heroes Fund” will be used to help healthcare workers and first responders throughout Colbert, Lauderdale and Franklin Counties. The Helping Heroes Fund will help provide meals, childcare, snacks and more to the men and women on the front lines during this health crisis. Donations may be designated for a particular item, group or left to the discretion of the Foundation. 100% of any money donated will go to the Helping Heroes Fund.

A large portion of the money collected will go to help our local restaurants. We will feed the healthcare workers by purchasing food from various establishments in our area. We realize this is a tough time for everyone and if we can help each other, we all win.

A Star is Born

The Helen Keller Hospital Foundation offers a unique way to celebrate our Kellerbabies. This program allows families to purchase a brass star for $100. The stars are engraved with the name and birthdate of the child and displayed inside the Women’s Center at Helen Keller Hospital. This purchase is tax-deductible and the proceeds of all stars help the Foundation provide equipment and services for the hospital. Stars may be purchased to recognize anyone born at Helen Keller Hospital or Colbert County Hospital. For more information, call (256) 386-4747.
