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 Mercy Medical Center, 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 gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.Watch How It Works
An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him and honor those who had compassionately cared for him during his last years. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising the hospital for the Mercy Touch, its highly educated staff and its commitment to the community.
Sarah decided to establish a scholarship for Mercy Medical Center nurses in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Mercy thanks to the scholarship allowing staff to continue their education, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
