Tribute Giving in the name of a loved one

A Gift to the KGH Foundation
makes an Excellent Gift

It’s called tribute giving – a commemorative donation that recognizes, honours, and/or celebrates people and events. When you give to the KGH Foundation, you have the option to give in tribute (memory, honor, celebration) of someone special, including a donation in lieu of flowers in memory of a special someone, a gift in celebration of a friend or family member’s special event, or even a gift to honor your healthcare team. Your tribute gift makes a big difference.

In Memory.

A Gift in Memory is a special way for family and friends to express their condolences. You can even select for us to send (mail or email) a card on your behalf to the next of kin with an expression of sympathy. The amount of your gift is kept strictly confidential.

When donations in memory of a person reaches $2500, the next of kin will be notified with an opportunity to have their loved one recognized on the Foundation’s Remembrance Wall in the Hospital.  This wall displays personally engraved memorial birds in flight over the Okanagan landscape.

In Celebration.

A donation in celebration of a special-someone is a great way to say ‘thank-you’, ‘happy birthday’, ‘happy anniversary’ or simply ‘I’m thinking of you’.

“People always ask why, but maybe they should ask why not! You get to work with the nicest people, for the nicest people. It’s the best kind of job satisfaction you’ll ever find.”

“I am inspired by how selfless people are – caring for others who they have never met and whose story they may never know.  But yet they give generously to make the situation of others better.  I have so much respect for those who act to make the world a better place.  In the end it’s all that matters.”
