Memorial and Honorarium Gifts

Memorial gifts are one way to remember those who have lived before us. They represent a heartfelt way to honor the memory of someone in our lives and can be given in sympathy or remembrance. Honorarium gifts can be given in honor of a special person or to honor significant occasions in life. They are sincere reminders of how much you care and can be given to celebrate a birthday, wedding, anniversary, holiday or other special event.

Altru Health Foundation will acknowledge your tribute gift by sending an appropriate note to the family or friend in whose name the gift was made if you so desire. To do so, please provide us the name and address of the family or friend the note should be addressed to. The amount of your gift will not be mentioned. A separate receipt will be sent to you.

Stocks and Securities

Altru Health Foundation is happy to accept a gift of stock to benefit any Altru Health System patient care program or service.

Probably the easiest method of achieving the transfer of stock ownership is to notify your broker that you wish to transfer the stock to Altru Health Foundation. Have your financial advisor or broker contact Jon Green to discuss the appropriate process to ensure you receive all available tax advantages.

When the Foundation receives notification of the transfer, we will provide you with a statement that reflects the amount of the gift per IRS guidelines.

Because there is sometimes more than one gift being transferred during the same time frame, it is helpful to let the Foundation know the name of the stock, how many shares, and the date the authorization is delivered to your stock broker. This will assure that your gift of stock is credited appropriately.

Thank you for your interest in the Altru Health System. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact:
