Make a Memorial Gift

Make a gift in memory or in honor of…

When you donate to us, you can choose to make a gift in memory of someone who has passed or as a way to express sympathy to their family. You can also make a gift in honor of someone as a way to celebrate a special occasion, recognize an achievement, or honor a health care hero who cared for your loved one.

What is a Memorial Gift?

A memorial gift is a way to honor the memory of a relative, friend, or loved one. It can also mark a special occasion like a birthday, wedding or anniversary. There are many ways to make a memorial gift to MJHS Health System through our Foundation:

Start 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.

We can also help you start a memorial fund in honor of a loved one. Please contact Allison Mondell Wesalo at 212-649-5228 or [email protected]. Or fill out the form on this page.

Engrave A Name On Our Tree of Life

Memorial gifts can also take the “physical” form by engraving our Tree of Life or inscribing a rock. This will create a personal and long-lasting tribute while also supporting the compassionate care provided by MJHS.

Remembrance Through Prayers

If you observe customs associated with mourning and memorializing a loved one through prayer and reflection, we offer Jewish Memorial Prayers as well. Our Rabbis are available to offer Kaddish, Yahrzeit, and other memorial prayers to help observe Jewish customs associated with mourning and memorializing your loved one. 

We know that everyone has their own way of dealing with loss and we are here to support you every step of the way. If you need additional support and education you can also reach out to our Bereavement department and join one of our support groups.
