Tribute and Memorial Giving

Our memorial and tribute giving program is a wonderful way to acknowledge a special person in your life. These gifts fit any occasion and help us to ensure that our patients receive the personal, compassionate and high quality care for which Tufts Medical Center is known. We are grateful to receive:
  • Memorial gifts in remembrance of a loved one
  • Tribute gifts in honor of a patient or caregiver
  • Celebratory gifts for occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries and weddings

Our Development staff will be honored to work with you to create a lasting testimony to an important person, and we encourage you to contact us at 617-636-7656 or at so we can best serve you in achieving your wishes. We always appreciate receiving gifts in support of programs that hold special meaning for our patients and their family members and friends, as well as gifts that support Tufts Medical Center in general for its greatest patient-focused needs. 

*Please note: while inpatient care at Tufts Children’s Hospital is now closed, there are many pediatric services we still provide. Gifts may be directed to the Department of Pediatrics at Tufts Medical Center. Please contact us at 617-636-7656 or at if you have any questions.

For memorial gifts, we suggest inscribing in the obituary and/or on funeral cards, “In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to Tufts Medical Center.”
