Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Memorial Medical Center Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

An Example of How It Works

Father and daughter smiling When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising our hospitals or foundation for its tireless efforts to better his community.

Sarah decided to make a gift to our hospitals or foundation in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at our hospitals or foundation thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
