WellStone is North Alabama’s nonprofit mental healthcare center, serving up to 14,000 kids, teens, and adults each year. As a 501(c)3 organization supported in part by our generous community, WellStone provides more than $3.1 million in uncompensated care to North Alabamians annually so that no one is turned away due to inability to pay.  

With 30% of all annual giving occurring in December, we wanted to share four ways you can make your year-end gift to WellStone: 

One-Time Gift 

Give a one-time gift of any amount to support kids, teens and adults.

  • Give $25 to cover a person’s co-pay for medication.
  • Give $75 to cover an individual’s psychiatric appointment.
  • Give $100 to subsidize therapy for a child.

Give a gift of any amount to support the Be the Rock capital campaign for WellStone Emergency Services, North Alabama’s only 24/7 emergency mental healthcare center.

Monthly Gift 

Support WellStone monthly, at any amount, and spread your impact for kids, teens, and adults across the entire year. Recurring donation opportunities begin at $5.50/month. Consider trading a monthly purchase of your choice (e.g. your latte order, lunchtime fast food) for a gift of hope and healing to your community. Your monthly gift builds a firm foundation for WellStone’s continued growth.  

Planned Gift 

By naming WellStone as a beneficiary in your will, you can leave a legacy of health and well-being in North Alabama. Your planned gift can strengthen our mission and provide access to quality mental healthcare to everyone in your community, regardless of resources, today, tomorrow, and for years to come. Learn more about planned giving opportunities through WellStone. Schedule an appointment with Director of Development Karen Petersen at karen.petersen@wellstone.com to learn more.

Naming Opportunity 

In spring 2021, WellStone publicly launched the Be the Rock capital campaign to support WellStone Emergency Services (WES) for adults in crisis. We recently topped $1 million in gifts and pledges to support that campaign. Hundreds of WellStone donors helped us reach that milestone with gifts ranging from $5 to $150,000. We’ve since expanded the campaign to help build WES for kids. View naming opportunities here. Schedule an appointment with Director of Development Karen Petersen at karen.petersen@wellstone.com to learn more about any of our spaces. 

WellStone is grateful for your support, regardless of donation size or type. Each contribution makes a difference! We hope you agree with these three reasons to make a year-end gift to WellStone.

Give a year-end gift to WellStone to support life-changing and lifesaving mental healthcare and substance abuse treatment services. Mental illness and substance use disorders affect all of us, either directly or indirectly.
