Donating to Good Shepherd Medical Center - Marshall
Donors Make the Difference

As a not-for-profit organization, our volunteers and donors are critical to the shared success of Good Shepherd Medical Center - Marshall. A contribution to the Marshall Hospital Foundation, serving Good Shepherd - Marshall, is an investment in the future of our hospital and, in turn, our community. Through a broad-based program of funding, the Foundation exists to promote the growth of the medical center.

Memorials and Honorariums

Have you ever wanted to do something really special in memory of a friend or relative, or in honor of someone important in your life? Memorials and honorariums are gifts that keep on giving.


Your will can provide an exemplary way to support your hospital and your community. We can provide the appropriate language to your attorney if you would like to include the Foundation in your will.
