The Memorial Giving Program is for families who wish to have donations in memory of their loved ones directed to St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation. When memorial gifts are received by the Foundation, a tribute is created for the loved ones with names added to the Memorial Wall located at St. Joseph's Hospital.
In Memoriam Tribute
Generally, families notify the community of the tribute as part of their loved one's obituary. The following wording is an example to use in an obituary:
"In lieu of flowers, charitable contributions can be made to St. Joseph's Hospital Foundation."
Once this has been done, we set up a tribute account.
As memorial donations come in, we regularly send the next of kin the names and addresses of those who have made contributions, as well as the ongoing tribute total.
