Tribute Gifts in
Memory and Celebration

If you would like to make a gift in someone’s honor or memory to Baptist Health

Memorial Giving Language

Family members often inquire about the appropriate language to use in an obituary, funeral notice, or memorial program to ask for donations in lieu of flowers.

The following is a recommended option with specifics in [brackets]:

The family welcomes donations to [specific program or department] at Baptist Health [or name of individual hospital] as an expression of sympathy, in memory of [name to be honored].

Contributions can be made at or by mail to:
Baptist Health Foundation
841 Prudential Drive., Suite 1300
Jacksonville, Florida 32207
Please include in memory of [ name to be honored] in the memo line.
