Create a Lasting Tribute
Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by a MultiCare program or service, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday. Your gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference for the patients and families we serve.
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. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising Mary Bridge Children's Hospital for its tireless efforts to care for all children, regardless of a family's ability to pay.
Sarah decided to make a gift to the Mary Bridge Children's Foundation in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Mary Bridge Children's Hospital and Health Center 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.
