Gifts in Memory
A gift in memory is a special way for family and friends to express their sympathy and love while helping Shaw advance healthcare in our community. Many people choose a memorial gift in lieu of flowers. Shaw 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 Shaw to receive 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 for Shaw Regional Cancer Center. Send to Vail Valley Medical Center Office of Development, PO Box 1529, Vail, CO 81658."

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

Gifts in Celebration
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. A letter will be sent to the individual being celebrated.
