Donation FAQs: 

How do I donate or sell supplies, such as masks, hand sanitizer or other items from my company to MUSC Health?

As a state-supported institution, MUSC Health must follow established procurement processes. Naturally, certain types of supplies must be verified as sterile or we are not permitted to purchase or accept them as donations. If you are interested in making donations of goods, please send an email to [email protected]. A response will be provided within a 24-hour business day.

Where can I drop off supplies for donation to MUSC Health?

Any donations must be discussed, vetted and agreed to with a hospital supply chain team member before a donation site is disclosed. Individual MUSC or MUSC Health team members are not able to declare sites for drop-off without permission from supply chain, public safety and hospital security leaders.
