MAKE A TRIBUTE OR MEMORIAL GIFT

HONOR A LOVED ONE

Making a tribute gift is a very special way to recognize or memorialize a meaningful person in your life while also helping Duke Children’s.  When you make such a gift, you play a critical part in our ability to continue providing exceptional care and hope. 

Memorial Gift

When you make a memorial gift, you remember, honor, and celebrate someone important to you. These gifts are a meaningful way to keep the memory of your loved one alive while also creating lasting positive impact.

HONOR A LOVED ONE

Honorary Gift

For those looking to honor a loved one, special friend, or Duke Children’s medical provider, an honorary gift is the perfect option. Honorary gifts can be made in lieu of flowers, in honor of a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or just to say “thanks.” 

If you were a patient or family member of a patient, you can also use an honorary gift to express gratitude for your care. Your gift helps Duke Children’s recognize the amazing caregivers that make our work possible. 

Special Occasion Giving

Commemorate a special occasion by celebrating with a donation in lieu of gifts. Your generosity helps make a meaningful difference in the lives of those we serve, and can make the occasion even more memorable and rewarding.

Make a Legacy Gift 

Creating a lasting legacy in your family’s name can make a powerful, ongoing difference in the lives of our patients. Your family can also benefit from tax benefits when you make a planned gift.


 

The William H. Mautz Pediatric Cardiology Support Fund honors the memory of our son and brother, and acknowledges the wonderful care he received at Duke Children’s hospital. Most importantly, though, funding this endowment keeps our family focused on a positive, tangible expression of our love for Will and his ideals.
