Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Keeping Memories Alive

Honor friends, neighbors, and family members who have made an impact in your life with a tribute or memorial gift. A tribute is a unique and meaningful way to recognize a loved one for an upcoming wedding, birthday, or celebratory event. When a loved one has passed, a memorial gift is an impactful way to keep their memory alive.

The Foundation will send a personalized letter to the honoree or honoree’s family to inform them of your thoughtful gift while keeping the amount confidential. Your gift to McLaren Northern Michigan will support the area of greatest need or a designated program of your choice.

Thank you for your support and generosity.
