Child Life Giving Information

Thank you so much for your interest in giving to MUSC Children’s Health! Donations for patients and general play programming are managed through the Child Life Department. We appreciate your help in providing resources for our patients and families.

Giving Information: Donation Guidelines (PDF)

Here are a few guidelines that we ask you to follow when donating:

  • Our patients range in age from newborn to teens. Please consider all ages when gifting.
  • All items must be brand new, unwrapped, and in original packaging. We are unable to accept large stuffed animals, scooters, skateboards, any size bicycle, or oversized items.
  • Items should be respectful of all religions, cultures and belief systems.
  • The MUSC wish list (PDF) and registries indicate most needed items at this time.

Option 1: Shop Online & Ship Items

For contactless and virtual donations, two online gift registries are available.This eliminates in-person shopping and the need to deliver directly to us. The wish lists & registries reflect our greatest needs and preferred gifts. The shipping address is on file with each registry. Please allow ample time for delivery.
