Creating a more hopeful Montana.

Shodair is creating a healthy and hopeful Montana through specialized psychiatric care for children and adolescents along with a nationally recognized genetics program providing care for all ages. 99% of our patients come from right here in Montana. And because no family should have to worry about the cost to help their loved one, we don’t turn anyone away.

This means donor support is vital. Support Shodair and you will be helping some of Montana’s most vulnerable residents.

If you have someone if your life you would like to honor or memorialize with your donation, please include their name below.

Ways to Give

. . .

It is through the continued generosity of individuals, corporations, and foundations that Shodair Children’s Hospital is able to provide a healthier and brighter future for our children. You can help ensure that our young patients receive the best psychiatric care available by making a gift that will support education, research, specialized medical programs, community health outreach, and provide care for those who cannot afford it.

Individual Giving


Individual gifts of all sizes make it possible for Shodair Children’s Hospital to provide children and their families the best mental health treatment available.

There are several ways to make charitable donations to the Montana Children’s Foundation (MCF). Gifts can be restricted, which means they are designated for specific programs or departments within the hospital, or they can be unrestricted, which will benefit areas where the need is the greatest. For special occasions or to celebrate or remember the life of a loved one, donors may make tribute donations. There are also several naming opportunities available throughout the hospital. MCF honors each donor and acknowledges all donations.
