With a tribute gift, memories and events can make a more lasting impact. By establishing a tribute gift, you can invite others to be part of a cherished legacy or join you in making an important event even more meaningful. 

What is a Tribute Gift?

A tribute gift is made in recognition of a person or life event. It’s a powerful way to honor someone who has passed by contributing to a cause they cared deeply about. It’s also a great way to mark an important occasion, whether the event is in your life or the life of a family member.

In Memoriam Gifts 

  • In memoriam gifts are made in memory of a loved one who is no longer living.  
  • The gift pays tribute by raising funds for a cause that was important to them. 
  • The funds can be directed toward any Loma Linda University Health area of your choosing. This includes specific scholarships, areas of clinical care or mission programs. 
  • Make a one-time gift in memory of a loved one, or work with us to create a custom memorial giving page for you to share on social media or email. This helps you invite others to give in your loved one’s memory.  

In Celebration Gifts

A celebration tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor a birthday, graduation, wedding or professional achievement. Celebrate with a one-time gift to the fund of your choice, or invite others to share in your celebration by contributing. 

One-Time Tribute Gifts 

If you intend for a memoriam or celebration tribute to be a one-time gift, please select “one-time gift” and check the tribute box when using the giving form.

“My son started coming to Loma Linda when he was two years old as a spina bifida patient. The care that he received here was wonderful. He was 27 when he passed away in 2009, and so I donated in his memory.”
