Create a Legacy Through Giving

A Gift to Honor a Special Person

When someone close to us passes away, celebrating their life and reflecting on favorite memories can help us cope. One way to help the person’s legacy live on is to establish a memorial gift in his or her honor through Sun Health Foundation.

Before you make a memorial gift, consider a few key factors:

  • Purpose: Memorials honor the lives of friends or loved ones. You can make a gift to Sun Health Foundation without restrictions, or the gift can support a particular event or program.
  • Timing: Your gift may be given to us today to help support our most immediate needs, or you can include a gift in your will or living trust, stating that a specific asset, certain dollar amount or percentage of your estate will pass to us after your lifetime in honor of your loved one.
  • Type: Cash is a popular and easy way to make a gift, but you can also use securities or other assets. Like all charitable donations, a memorial gift can offer tax benefits.
  • Amount: No matter the size of your gift, you can be certain your support will make a lasting impact.

If the Sun Health Foundation’s mission was important to a loved one, please contact me to discuss ways that you can make a gift in honor of that special person. I’d be happy to work with you to create a gift that properly honors his or her memory. Please call me directly at 623-832-5582 or email me at sharon.thornton@sunhealth.org.
