How You Can Help

You can be part of something special

Our donor relations effort includes many interesting opportunities for giving and participating. Here are just a few:

Women & Philanthropy

One of the many ways to support the work of Shriners Hospitals for Children is through the unique effort known as the First Lady’s program. This year, one of those initiatives is the Women & Philanthropy program – Shriners Hospitals for Children. Membership is open to all women. The only criteria are having a passion and concern for others, and a heartfelt, strong desire to make the world a better place and improve the lives of children. Our First Lady (the title we give to the wife of the leader of the fraternity that founded and continues to support Shriners Hospitals), Cheryl Sowder, believes that women have an increasing ability to effect change through their leadership and philanthropic efforts.

CARS vehicle donation program

Our vehicle donation program allows you to donate almost any vehicle to Shriners Hospitals for Children, including cars, trucks, RVs, boats and even airplanes. CARS works with hundreds of auction yards and tow companies in North America to pick up donated vehicles just about anywhere across the country. The program includes a network of small and large vendors that allows us to maximize donation proceeds.
