Tributes & Memorial Gifts

Honor friends, colleagues, and family members in a meaningful way with a tribute or memorial gift. Your gift to Cedars-Sinai can be used to support the area of most urgent need, or you can designate a specific program.

We will send a personalized letter to the honoree or honoree's family to inform them of your thoughtful gift, while keeping the amount confidential. 

Tribute Gifts

A tribute gift commemorates a variety of sentiments and occasions, including get-well wishes, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings or religious milestones, such as baptisms, bar/bat mitzvahs and confirmations. You also can show appreciation for a Cedars-Sinai caregiver by making a gift through Circle of Friends, our grateful patient program. 

Memorial Gifts

A memorial gift is a wonderful way to remember and honor a loved one. Memorial gifts keep the memory of your loved one alive and have lasting impact. Families may request memorial gifts, in lieu of flowers, to be directed to an area of your choosing at Cedars-Sinai.
