When giving goes global

On #GivingTuesday, ordinary people around the world gathered together to give collectively, creating the ability to positively influence local and global charitable work. And thanks to your generosity, our first #GivingTuesday campaign launched with great success, further enabling Baptist Memorial Health Care Foundation’s ability to change lives.

And because #GivingTuesday only peaked more questions and curiosity, our #GivingTuesday campaign continues. We know, just as loss claims no season or day, neither do generous spirits.

If you’ve just arrived, we appreciate your time. Explore how your giving can make a difference for someone who is grieving or facing life’s final hours.

Where Mending Begins

Take a moment to hear one family's story. It's just one among many.

Donate today. It will only take a minute.

Your gift can spark a change

Loss, death and recovery know no name, culture, race, creed or country. Ultimately, we are all tied by our common humanity. Magnified by the advent of #GivingTuesday, the value of giving across borders to help another is immeasurable.

Through our work at the Kemmons Wilson Family Center for Good Grief, our annual Camp Good Grief and the Baptist Reynolds Hospice House, we help restore hope and healing when a child or adult faces the loss of a loved one. Funded entirely through donations, these programs exist because of the generosity of people like you.

Camp Good Grief

Cultivating a culture of healthy campers

It's more than a camp. It's a refuge, filled with counselors, volunteers, fun and even dogs. Since 1999, more than 1,000 campers have attended Camp Good Grief where grieving, crying, laughter and living occur every moment. It's safe, encouraging and needed for those campers struggling to understand their own grief—and to overcome it.
