Sheppard Pratt Funds

To continue providing our patients and students with the specialized care they need in a supportive and compassionate environment, please make a gift to one of our primary funds by clicking here.


Care for Kids Fund

This fund provides our special education students and pediatric patients, who are as young as five years old, with essential needs and therapeutically-beneficial activities. Donations are directed to our schools, inpatient, outpatient, and residential programs, which help to facilitate the academic and emotional growth of our children and adolescents with autism and emotional disabilities. Funds raised provide things like sensory room equipment, art supplies, musical instruments, technology enhancements, books, playground equipment, field trips, 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.
