Our donations program is part of the Northside Hospital Foundation, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization. All donations are tax-deductible. Please make sure to tell us if your donation is in memory of a baby by giving us the name of the baby and parents.
H.E.A.R.T.strings Perinatal Bereavement & Palliative Care is honored to offer families a way to remember the life of their baby by donating to our program and supporting families around our community and beyond. Your monetary donation can be designated to any or all of our three funds:
Atlanta Walk to Remember: Funds are used to pay for event planning and expenses so that it remains free to the public to attend.
H.E.A.R.T.strings Legacy Fund: Monies are used for our overall program to purchase keepsake items, printed resources, provide training for staff and other needs.

WEDDING DRESS DONATIONS* The donation of infant burial gowns made from wedding dresses has become a meaningful and popular way for people to give back. Our program and families have benefited from these donations for many years. We have found, because of the materials, that sometimes the gowns are hard for us to work with.If you are thinking about donating your dress, please consider having it made into “blankets” or wraps, and small pillows. Blanket sizes from 12” square to 36” square. These will make beautiful keepsakes to share with our families.
*At this time we have a full inventory of gowns. Please consider donating gowns to another area hospital which may have less resources than Northside. Thank you for your generosity, and for thinking of these families.
Donations can be mailed to:
