Create a tribute fund
Those we love and respect deserve to be remembered for all the unique gifts they brought to the world. Time and again, people just like you have supported Advocate hospitals and programs with charitable gifts made in honor or in memory of people who have touched their lives. Now there's a way to create a more personalized, lasting tribute to those you care about. A tribute fund through Advocate Charitable Foundation provides an enduring way to honor or remember a family member, a friend, a mentor, even a favorite physician or nurse.
What is a tribute fund?
A tribute fund honors the work, the life or the loss of someone while also supporting the mission of your favorite Advocate hospital or program. The fund exists in perpetuity, allowing you, your friends, family and community to honor your loved one over time.
Why create a lasting tribute fund?
A tribute fund allows you to express your admiration for someone, and provide the opportunity to others. With your encouragement, anyone can make a gift to the tribute fund you create. There are many ways to contribute to the fund:
- Begin the circle of healing: give to the fund in lieu of flowers at a funeral.
- Mark significant dates or anniversaries with annual donations.
- Sustain the fund easily through regular, monthly gifts.
- Celebrate a life and heal from a loss through a fundraising event with family and friends.
