J. D. McCarty Center is a state agency and a 501(c)(3)
not-for-profit pediatric rehab hospital. We are
unique as a state agency in that we earn 86% of
our annual operating budget from our fees-for-service.
The remainder of our budget comes from a combination
of state funds, grants, fundraising events and
Grants, fundraising and
donations help the McCarty Center provide items
for the children we serve that are important
to their care and treatment but are unable to
be purchased because of budget restraints.
Donations come in two forms--financial
and in-kind. Financial donations are always
welcome, and are tax deductible. In-kind donation
items are also welcome and can be tax deductible.
In-Kind Donation Criteria
Our basic criteria for in-kind donations
is that the items be new or gently used and
in good working order. The McCarty Center does
