Named Gifts and Tributes

Sometimes when you want to show someone how much you care, it can be difficult to find the right gift to express your feelings. Consider giving a named gift or a tribute sometimes called a commemorative gift. This gift is one of recognition and celebration of a person close to you. It may honor a living person, remember someone who has died, or celebrate an event like a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, retirement, or special holiday.

Gifts from the heart are appropriate for many occasions.

  • In memory of a relative, friend, neighbor, business associate, or a special person.
  • To honor a birthday, anniversary, birth of a child, graduation, or any occasion.
  • To send get well wishes.
  • To say “thank you.”
  • To remember.

Many members of HPNA and families whose loved ones received their care feel a special gratitude. A gift to the foundation is a wonderful way to say thank you to nurses, other staff, and volunteers, while honoring the work they do. Click ‘Start a Tribute Page’ to make a customized page for your loved one.
