Make an In-Kind Gift to Grady

While monetary gifts are vitally important to the hospital and can be used to purchase items most in need, we do accept in-kind donations through Grady Health System’s Adopt-A-Department program. Adopt-A-Department allows you to donate items of greatest need (in-kind donations) that have been identified by the staff at Grady. Donations help to provide the best care possible to our patients and create a healthy and happy work environment for Grady employees.

How can you donate?

We have made donations easy with Department Wish Lists on Below you can click on the various Department graphics to browse the items that have been hand-picked by Grady staff. You can purchase these items through and have them delivered directly to our office.

You can also choose some of the items from one of these lists and purchase them on your own. Please fill out our In-Kind Donation Form and include it with your item. You can deliver your donations on weekdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. to our office at:
