Tribute and Memorial Gifts

Memorial and tribute gifts are a meaningful way to honor family and friends. Your gift to Cedars-Sinai can be used to support the area of most urgent need, or you can designate a specific program as the beneficiary.

We will send a personalized letter to the honoree or honoree’s family to inform them of your thoughtful gift. The gift amount will not be disclosed.

Tribute Gifts

Tribute gifts commemorate 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 can also:

  • Honor the life of a baby while supporting the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology by sponsoring a tile in the Baby Tribute Gallery
  • Show appreciation for a Cedars-Sinai caregiver by making a gift through Circle of Friends, our grateful patient program
