Honorary & Memorial Gifts

Vail Valley Medical Center welcomes and appreciates tribute gifts to celebrate, honor or memorialize a loved one. From tributes that mark an important occasion to memorials that perpetuate the legacy of someone who has passed away, these gifts are a significant source of support for VVMC. 

Please contact the Office of Development at (970) 477-5177 or vvmcdevelopment@vvmc.com.

Memorial Gift

Memorial Gift

A gift in memory is a special way for family and friends to express their sympathy and love while helping VVMC advance health care in our community. Many people choose a memorial gift in lieu of flowers. VVMC acknowledges all donations given in memory by a letter to the next of kin with an expression of sympathy. Memorials are published on our donor wall and in our annual report to the community.

If you designate VVMC as a recipient of memorial gifts in honor of your loved one, it is helpful to include the following in the obituary: "In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Vail Valley Medical Center, Office of Development, PO Box 1529, Vail, CO 81658." If you would like your gift to benefit a specific department or area of service within the hospital, VVMC will allocate your donation accordingly.

Honorary Gift

A gift in honor can be made to acknowledge a survivor or thank a clinician who deserves extra recognition for his/her compassion and commitment. We will proudly notify the individual being honored.

Celebratory Gift

A gift in celebration is a special opportunity to let family members, friends and/or colleagues know that you are thinking of them. These gifts are often made to mark an important event like the birth of a child or grandchild, a wedding, anniversary, graduation, retirement, holiday or other memorable occasion. VVMC will send a letter to the individual being celebrated.
