Here with You – Show your Love with a Hospice Memorial

Tributes and Memorials

Tribute Donations

Make a donation to Hospice in memory or honor of someone special. Those who have lost a loved one will be truly comforted by your caring support and thoughtfulness. When you make a gift to Hospice Buffalo, notification is sent to the person or family you indicate. The amount of the donation is not disclosed. You will receive an acknowledgement from the Hospice Foundation of WNY for your tax-deductible gift. Tribute donations of $50 or more will be printed in our 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.

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.
