COVID-19 Donations

Newly Created Charitable Funds

Frederick Health has established two charitable funds in response to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • The Frederick Health COVID-19 Hospital Support Fund - enables the public to provide financial resources to help the hospital respond to critical operating needs during the COVID-19 crisis.
  • The Frederick Health COVID-19 Employee Relief Fund - enables the public to provide financial assistance to our employees who are experiencing a personal financial hardship due to the COVID-19 crisis. Frederick Health employees can continue to support fellow employees in need through the Angel Fund, an internal employee-to-employee assistance fund established in 2009.

Contributions to both COVID-19 funds can be made online at or by mailing a check to Frederick Health Development Office, 405 W. 7th St, Frederick, MD 21701.

Frederick Health Hospital is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization and all gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law.
