A memorial gift made to Griffin Hospital is a testimonial to the meaningfulness of a life that has passed on. An honor gift is a loving way to remember someone still living or a special occasion, such as Christmas, Hanukkah, Mother's and Father's Day, or a birthday or anniversary.
Memorial gifts and Honor gifts, like all donations to Griffin Hospital, can be given by mail, credit card, or over the phone. Donors should be sure to indicate that their contribution is a memorial gift or honor gift and include the name(s) of those being memorialized or honored. Donors should also be sure to provide the names and addresses of anyone they wish to receive an acknowledgment of their donation. If making this donation online, include this information in the "Gift Information" section of the online form.
When a Memorial or Honor gift is received by Griffin, a letter is sent to the donor to acknowledge the gift, as well as to any persons that the donor indicates should receive an acknowledgment card. This may include the family of the deceased or the person being honored, informing them of your kindness. The card will show the name of the person being memorialized or honored and the name of the donor or donors. (The amount of the gift is not revealed).
