Fundraising Events


Join an Event

As a nonprofit organization, Gaylord Specialty Healthcare relies on donations from grateful patients, families, neighbors, businesses, and foundations to fund several programs that directly impact our clinical care and patient outcomes. Donations help purchase state-of-the-art equipment, update and improve our clinical and patient care areas, underwrite outreach programs like the Gaylord Sports Association as well as maintain our beautiful campus. These gifts ensure that Gaylord remains at the forefront of clinical care and technological usage- the beneficiaries are the patients whose lives are rebuilt and their function is restored.

The events below are just some of the many ways that bring local communities together in support of our mission. Learn more about our signature campaigns or join an event by following the links below.
