Honor and Memorial Gifts
There is often no better way to honor or memorialize that special person than by making a gift in their name.
Did you or a loved one receive excellent medical care at Spartanburg Regional and want to say thank you to a caregiver or department? Have you and your family decided that the best gift to give for a special event is a contribution in a loved one’s name? If so, please denote that your gift is in honor of someone special when making your gift. Additionally, you can restrict your gift to a certain department or division.
Friends and family members of the deceased often choose to express their respect in a more enduring way than with cards or flowers. Making a charitable contribution in the name of a lost loved one can have special meaning to both the family and the donor. This lasting gift also serves to support Spartanburg Regional, making a tangible difference in the health of our community. Additionally, you can designate your gift to a certain department or division.
After you make your tribute gift, a letter announcing your contribution will be mailed to the family of the deceased or the honoree (however, no mention will be made of the gift’s value). You will receive an acknowledgement for your gift for tax purposes and your gift will be recognized in Foundation publications.
Directing Memorial Gifts to Spartanburg Regional
Families often ask how to list Spartanburg Regional as a designated charity in their loved one’s obituary to benefit a specific program or department. It is for this reason that we offer the following suggested language:
“In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that you make a donation in memory of (Name of Loved One) to (Name of Department, Program or Fund) at Spartanburg Regional Foundation; 101 East Wood Street; Spartanburg, SC 29303”
If you wish to notify us that general gifts made in your loved one’s memory should be designated toward a specific program, or if you have any questions, please call the Foundation Office at 864-560-6727.
