Thriving under the excellent care provided to her at Western Maryland Health System’s Center for Clinical Resources, Type 1 Diabetes Patient Dayna Logsdon (center) makes a gift to Western Maryland Health System. Her check will be targeted to help other diabetic patients in need. Pictured with Dayna are Karen Johnson (l), WMHS Chief Development Officer and Director of the WMHS Foundation, and Jennifer Perrin, Certified Diabetes Educator, who taught Dayna how to manage her disease at the beginning of her diagnosis and continues to assist Dayna and others with their care as diabetics.

Create a Scholarship or Contribute to One

Scholarships are a great way to support local students while ensuring excellence in community healthcare.

Memorials and Tributes

A donation of any size is a meaningful way to remember or honor a special person in your life. We acknowledge each gift received, and notify the surviving family or honoree of your thoughtful gift.


Consider a gift in your will to support a cause that’s important to you. Gifts can be all or any part of a will or trust, and when the time comes, we carefully carry out your wishes, with integrity and compassion.

Become a Volunteer or Auxiliary Member

Our “front line” ambassadors are our volunteers and auxiliary members. Service, events, and support…these individuals are integral to the success of WMHS.

Oncology Tribute Wall

Send a special message of remembrance, encouragement, or hope by purchasing a shining blue block on the Oncology Tribute Wall. Blocks are available in two sizes and will share your personally created message.

Real Estate, Insurance Policies, Stocks and Securities

A variety of gifts could provide benefits to you, as the donor, while offering important support for WMHS. We encourage you to consult your tax or legal advisor.

Adopt a Room

For a lasting, public honor you may want to adopt a room in a patient care area of your choice. Your plaque’s personalized message alongside a doorway will speak to thousands as they pass that way.

Sponsor an Event

September’s Signature Dinner/Auction and Golf Classic each have sponsorship opportunities. Buy a table or put together a foursome and you’ll be sharing your generosity while having a great time with friends.

Show Gratitude for a Specific Unit, Service Line, or Caregiver

Send a donation of any size, noting the unit, caregiver, or service you received, and we will honor them. Anyone or any service you experienced would be delighted to hear from you, and we would be honored to carry that message of gratitude to them.

Workplace Giving for Government Employees

Enroll in state and federal workplace charitable giving programs in your employer’s annual campaign to support the important work of WMHS.
