Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one with a strong connection to Children's National Hospital, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday. Your memorial or tribute gift will honor your loved one and support our mission.

An Example of How It Works

John and his mother smiling When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising Children's National for its efforts to better the community.

John decided to make a gift to Children's National in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at Children's National thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
