Gratitude inspires giving back
to make a difference

Honor and Memorial Giving

Many of our donors choose to make their gift in honor or memory of a loved one. These tribute gifts are a cherished way for our donors to remember and honor a loved one’s passing and express gratitude for the care they received; to celebrate significant occasions like graduations, weddings, birthdays and bar and bat mitvahs; or just to let someone special know you’re thinking about them.

Honor and memorial giving has a rich history that dates back to the founding of our legacy institutions, Barnes Hospital and Jewish Hospital, and we’re proud to carry the tradition forward with our donors.


If you would like to make a tribute gift in honor or memory of someone, please use our online giving form to indicate who you would like to honor or remember. We will notify your honoree that a gift has been made and share your personal message.

Many of our kind and generous community members include The Foundation for Barnes-Jewish Hospital in obituaries to ask for donations. If you would like to include the Foundation in an obituary or arrange for donations to be sent for a special occasion, we are happy to assist. Please call 314-286-0445 to make arrangements.

Thank you for thinking of others in your giving and for changing the community for the better in the name of someone you care about.

If you have a question about your gift, call 314-286-0445 or email [email protected].
