Memorial and tribute gifts

There are many ways to mark a milestone.

Whether you want to memorialize a loved one or recognize a special moment in the life of someone special, making a memorial or tribute gift supports the mission of Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin and honors a momentous occasion in a special way.

Memorial gifts

We are keenly aware of the sobering truth that not everyone who walks through our doors triumphs over their disease. The loss of a child is a deeply sorrowful and grief-stricken event. Our caregivers are highly attuned to this reality and Children’s has many support groups on hand to help our families cope. Many families suffering these circumstances choose to direct memorials to Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

Memorial gifts may be made in remembrance of a loved one

You may memorialize a loved one’s life by directing funds to our foundation in their name. By making a gift in honor of their life, no matter their age, your generosity supports the mission of Children’s and their family will receive acknowledgement of your gift.* 

It is our hope that each family is notified of your support during this difficult time.

*In order to thoughtfully acknowledge a family, we kindly ask that upon making a memorial gift, you include the address of the individual to whom you’d like acknowledgements sent and your relationship to that individual in addition to that individual’s relationship to the deceased. (mother, father, grandmother, aunt, etc.)

Memorials with gifts surpassing $999.00 are also acknowledged by including your loved one’s name on a special display in our hospital lobby.

In the midst of sorrow and grief, as we and our families move forward, each day, step by step, little by little, know that your gifts are incredibly meaningful.

Tribute gifts

Tribute gifts honor loved ones who may be marking a milestone. Whether an anniversary, a celebration, or a special occasion, whatever your motivation for making a gift, directing your support to Children’s is a thoughtful way to show you care.
