Tribute + Memorial Giving

Honor the special people and moments in your life with a tribute or memorial gift. A tribute gift is a thoughtful way to recognize a person, milestone or occasion that’s close to your heart. And should you desire to remember a loved one who has passed away, a memorial gift can make a meaningful difference.

A gift to remember

The most meaningful gifts can’t be wrapped. Consider a tribute or memorial gift in the name of a loved one as a unique way to celebrate a person, milestone or holiday with something bigger than a box. Imagine the power of making someone you care about part of our legacy.

For tribute gifts, we suggest including the message, “In lieu of gifts, donations in honor of [individual name or occasion] can be made to [hospital name]” on invitations and other correspondence.

For memorial gifts, we suggest inscribing, “In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to [hospital name]” in the obituary and on funeral cards. 

No matter which program you choose to support, you’ll be helping us to provide compassionate care for your friends, family and community.
