Honoring a Loved One
While Supporting Vital Services
What is a Memorial Fund?
A memorial fund is a charitable fund established to accept donations in memory of, or in honor of a loved one who has passed. It is a personal way to honor their legacy while having a meaningful impact on the care we provide. Most people create a memorial fund to raise money for a cause that was important to their loved one, or personal to them.
These memorial funds have been critical in helping MJHS continue to go above and beyond for our patients and their families. Creating a named fund also gives families and their networks the opportunity to celebrate the legacy of a loved one while having a lasting impact for years to come.
Starting a Memorial Fund with MJHS
At MJHS we have many programs and services that need ongoing support so we can continue to provide them to our community. Some of these include Creative Arts Therapy, Caregiver Support, Dementia Care and Pastoral Care, to name a few. Start by choosing one that speaks to you and that you feel is close to your heart.
After you have chosen an area of care to focus on, invite others to join you in honoring your loved one with a gift in their name. Some families choose to do this yearly on their loved one’s birthday or anniversary of their passing. The cadence is up to you, but whatever funds you raise will be restricted to the program you’ve chosen.
We are with you every step of the way
Our Foundation will support you every step of the way- from assisting you in creating letters and emails to drafting the message for your peers.
