A Gift That Honors a Life
Whether seeking a diagnosis or a life-saving treatment, patients often build long-lasting relationships with Mayo Clinic. If you have a loved one who has been touched by Mayo Clinic, 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 our patients and their families for years to come.
Check Out This Potential Scenario
When 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 Mayo Clinic for its tireless efforts to better his community. So Sarah decided to make a gift to Mayo Clinic in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at Mayo Clinic 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.
