Ways to Give Your Donation Matters
Thanks to your gifts and additional community support, the Foundation has been able to give thousands of dollars to our support patients, facilities, and even co-workers.
Honor a Caregiver
Are you a Grateful Patient?
We would love to hear about how the SGMC Foundation has impacted your life.
You can recognize a physician, nurse or other care provider who made a difference for you or a loved one through our Grateful Patient program. When you honor a care provider who took remarkable care of you, they receive a card with your special message and a custom-crafted pin to wear proudly each day. The amount of your gift will not be shared.
Gifts received from grateful patients make it possible for us to provide state-of-the-art technology so that our doctors and nurses can continue providing the best possible care for patients.
Honor a Loved One
If you prefer to make your gift by phone, please call us at (229) 433-1076.
The Foundation staff is happy to assist families wishing to have memorial gifts made to South Georgia Medical Center in lieu of flowers.
Leave a Legacy
You can extend your support to SGMC by making a planned gift. Planned gifts include bequests, charitable trusts and annuities, and life insurance gifts. We always welcome the opportunity to discuss with donors the many options available for maximizing their philanthropic impact at SGMC, including ways to include SGMC in estate plans. When you include the SGMC Foundation in your estate plan, your generosity makes exceptional health care more accessible in the communities that we serve.
If you or a family member have made provisions for a gift to the SGMC Foundation within your estate plans, we would love to celebrate you now as a member of our Legacy Giving Society, the Heritage Circle.

SGMC Community Partners
Our SGMC Community Partners program launched in February 2023.
Community Partners are generous, visionary companies that have chosen to invest a minimum of $5,000 or more annually in the South Georgia Health System and improve the lives of the patients we serve. Their commitment to our community, hospitals and patients is deeply appreciated. These generous partners truly share in SGMC’s vision for the future of health care in South Georgia.
