Memorial and Honor Gifts

Memorial and honor gifts are a special way to honor loved onesUW Health in Madison, Wisconsin offers patients a special kind of care; one that builds on collaborations between the care providers at the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics and the physician-scientists at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.

 

Whether you wish to support programs and services for patients and their families, or shape the future by supporting the ongoing research that seeks to unravel the science behind disease, your gift can make a significant difference in the lives of many.

 

One special way to celebrate and honor a loved one is through a charitable gift to an organization or cause that was important to them. Patients will give gifts in honor of their caregivers who provided comfort in a time of need. Families may direct gifts to the UW Carbone Cancer Center to advance research. Others may give to American Family Children's Hospital in appreciation of the care their child received.

 

Whether you wish to give a gift in honor of someone, or in memory, there are many ways you can do so.
