Donate to Melrose Center and give hope for healing

At Melrose Center, we empower patients to recover from eating disorders with outstanding medical, nutritional and psychological care that supports each individual – body and mind.

Your generous donations make it possible to deliver the highest-quality care to all patients, offer community outreach and education programs plus so much more.

When you give, you aren’t just making a donation. You’re helping every patient get the care they deserve.

To make a gift online, visit our online donation page. You can also make a donation over the phone by calling 952-993-5023. Or, you can mail your gift using our printable donation form (PDF).

If you’d like to honor someone special, celebrate a milestone or send an inspirational message, you can also purchase a commemorative brick (PDF). These bricks are placed in the Melrose Center therapeutic healing garden to help surround our patients with messages of love and support while they heal.

Help us reduce the economic barriers that prevent patients and families from getting the care they need. The donations to this fund go toward transportation vouchers, translation services, personal care items, hotel stays for out-of-town families and many other ways to help.

This fund was established by Alison and Andrew Humphrey in loving memory of their daughter Clare. She passed away in 2017 after a long struggle with eating disorders and depression. In honor of her extraordinary spirit, Clare’s Fund will help patients and their families access eating disorder services that would be otherwise unavailable to them.

Brooke Dunning passed away on November 21, 2017 after a long struggle with eating disorders, depression and anxiety. She was only 29. Brooke’s Fund was established by Brooke’s mother, Diane Dunning, in loving memory of her daughter. This fund was created to honor Brooke’s legacy and her sense of purpose, helping others.

The Brooke Margaret Dunning Fund for Melrose Center provides support for education, outreach and special needs for patients, their families, caregivers and clinicians.

Your gifts make a big impact

From providing transportation vouchers, family therapy meals and personal care items to patients in need, to funding projects like music therapy, outreach events and continued research, each gift adds up to create a huge impact on our community.
