Honor Your Loved One with a Tribute Gift or Dedicated Memorial

Tribute Gift

Make a donation in memory or honor of someone special. While your gift helps further the Hospice mission, it also provides comfort to loved ones and caregivers. When you make a tribute gift, a notification will be sent to the person or family you indicate. The amount of the donation will not be disclosed. Like all donations, you will receive an acknowledgement from the Hospice Foundation for tax purposes.

Tribute donations of $100 or more will be printed in the Journeys newsletter.


Designated Memorials

When the time comes, you may designate Hospice Buffalo as the beneficiary of memorial gifts. Doing so will let your family and friends know that your preference is to have your loved one memorialized with a gift to Hospice. DSC_2724.jpg

When Hospice memorial gifts accumulate to a total of $2,000 or more in an individual’s name, that person's name will be inscribed on a granite pillar in our Memory Garden. We recognize these individuals annually in our Memory Garden located on the grounds of the Mitchell Campus. It is a beautiful legacy for your loved one.


Bricks/Pavers for Walkways and Gardens

The Hospice Memorial Walkway is a unique and memorable opportunity to remember your loved one. Personalized pavers outline walkways and gardens throughout our Mitchell Campus, honoring loved ones who have passed in the Hospice program. Pavers are available for dedication and will be engraved according to your wishes (space limitations apply). Pavers vary in size and material, depending on donation amount. Proceeds raised will be allocated toward improvements and maintenance of the Hospice Mitchell Campus. Learn more by downloading this brochure.


Trees, Planters, and Benches

Honor loved ones with brass memorial plaques. Your Plaque can be used to dedicate a Mitchell Campus tree, planter, or bench. These proceeds will be allocated to the Green Fund, a fund dedicated to the beautification and maintenance of the Hospice Mitchell Campus.


Name a Room

Honor your loved one by naming a room. Your loved one’s name can be permanently displayed on the Hospice Mitchell campus. Opportunities exist to name a room in the Mary & Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Inpatient Unit and the Wilson Care Center. 


Stained Glass Windows 

We have created a unique and beautiful memorial option in conjunction with Roycroft artisan Joe Albrecht. He has designed 16 lovely stained glass windows that are displayed in our family sunroom year round. Each window can be etched in memory of your loved one.
