Donor Stories

For over 40 years, our community of donors has nurtured South Georgia Medical Center’s growth, helping provide innovative health care for our family and friends in the counties we serve. Philanthropic support for SGMC stays in our community and is the tipping point that enables us to pursue our greatest potential as a regional health system.
We are grateful to the generous donors and volunteers – key members of the SGMC Foundation family – whose philanthropic commitment to quality health care helps sustain the charitable mission of the Foundation.

Please take a moment to meet some of our donors as they share their care experience at SGMC and giving stories.
