A Gift That Honors a Life

Memorials and Tributes

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Ochsner Clinic Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.

You can also honor a family member or a physician who treated you so well by making a tribute gift to Ochsner in your will. Many people have honored the memory of a friend or loved one by making a gift in a trust or a bequest.

Check Out This Potential Scenario

Couple SmilingWhen Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising Ochsner for the wonderful, compassionate care he had received there his whole life. So Sarah decided to make a gift to Ochsner in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Ochsner thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
