Sheppard Pratt Funds

Care for Kids Fund

Sheppard Pratt is Maryland's largest provider of mental health services for children. We serve over 20,000 children annually.

This fund provides our pediatric patients and students, who are as young as five  years old, with essential needs and therapeutically beneficial activities. Donations are directed to children in our inpatient, outpatient, residential, and special education programs. Funds raised provide our youngest patients with things like art supplies, musical instruments, playground equipment, and much more.


Patient Care Fund

At Sheppard Pratt, patients receive the highest quality care regardless of their financial situation. Our specialized programs provide treatment for developmental disabilities, eating disorders, geriatrics, and trauma disorders, among others.

This fund provides essential programmatic and clinical support to our patients, so they can live meaningful and successful lives.


Research Fund

This fund aims to further the research and clinical mission of Sheppard Pratt Health System.

One of the best ways to fight the stigma that blocks far too many people from seeking help is to conduct applicable, realistic research that demonstrates mental illness is a disorder of the brain, and that treatment works.


Special Education Fund

Our schools, which offer both vocational and academic curricula, provide the treatment and education necessary to equip our children and adolescents with the tools they need to serve as productive members of their communities.

This fund supports our special education program to facilitate the academic and emotional growth of students with autism and emotional disabilities. Donations support things like technology enhancements, books, outdoor play areas, playground equipment, and field trips.
