The Not For Profit Difference Supporting Our Mission

Throughout its 163 year history, Bishop Gadsden has evolved from the Home for Widows and Orphans, to The Episcopal Church Home for Women, to the Episcopal Church Home, to finally Bishop Gadsden, in honor of the Rt. Rev. Christopher Gadsden (Episcopal Bishop of South Carolina from 1840-1852.) While the name may have changed throughout the years, the one constant has been its ministry.

There are many ways to contribute to Bishop Gadsden, such as gifts in honor or memory of a loved one, general donations, and planned giving. Donations of cash, check and credit card are welcome, as well as gifts of securities, appreciated assets, and life insurance. Bishop Gadsden is an independent 501(c)3 not for profit corporation in the State of South Carolina. All gifts are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
