Support the Big Sur Health Center

For the Big Sur Health Center to remain open for the community and its visitors, we rely on the public's support. Especially in these uncertain economic times, the Big Sur Health Center cannot exist without continued donations. Your gift is extremely important, as it pays for the medical supplies and highly trained staff that care for everyone in the community.

Remember, no gift is too small. Your gift is important to us and, unless you wish to remain anonymous, will be acknowledged in our annual report.


  • We are a nonprofit and depend on the generosity of our donors.  Please contact our Executive Director, Sharen Carey at 831-667-2580 to find out how you can support Big Sur Health Center.

A gift of any size will support our mission to provide health care services to the Big Sur community and to help us sustain an ever-evolving community with viable health care programs that foster long and healthy living.

The Big Sur Health Center provides low-cost services to more than 1200 Big Sur patients each year.   While many services are covered by insurance or patient payments, all of the costs of providing those services are not covered.  With your help, we can continue to ensure that all who need it will receive our care.

Ways to Give

  • General Donations: We will direct your donation where it is most needed. Your support helps improve the lives of Big Sur residents who use any of our services.
  • Tributes: Gifts in honor or in memory of a special person are a wonderful way to provide a loving tribute. We will send an acknowledgement card at your request.
  • Directed Gifts: Also called restricted gifts, you may designate your gift to a specific service or area of the Big Sur Health Center.
