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.

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.

Foundation Project for 2021

It takes a TEAM!

Our Foundation Project for 2021 will focus on our Cardiac Rehab, Physical Therapy and a Covid Recovery Program. Our goal is to provide additional services and equipment to increase the level of care available to all our patients of the Shoals. You can be a part of this effort by giving! The Helen Keller Hospital Foundation is a 501(c) (3) corporation which allows the community to support healthcare through tax deductible contributions that are used right here at home through the expansion of services and facilities at Helen Keller Hospital.
