Memorial Gift

Memorial Gift

A memorial gift 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 notifies the next of kin of all memorial gifts. Memorials are published 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 Foundation, 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

An honorary gift 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 of a special occasion or milestone is an 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.
