Giving In Memory
Giving in memory of a loved one or cherished friend is a meaningful way to fondly remember the impact that individual had on your life. Be they a parent, family member, co-worker or friend, memorial gifts are especially impactful as they support the ongoing work of Cooley.
Many families choose to ask that charitable gifts be made in memory of their loved one in lieu of flowers. The online gift form provides a place to indicate who the gift remembers, or gifts can be mailed to Cooley Dickinson Development Office with a note that it is in memory of the individual.
Development staff can assist families in establishing memorial gifts and the appropriate language for an obituary. Or a family can include a simple statement in an obituary such as: In lieu of flowers, the family requests that be memorial gifts be made to Cooley Dickinson Health Care/Cooley Dickinson Hospital. Memorial gifts may be made online or sent to the Development Office, PO Box 329, Northampton MA 01060.
Honoring Great Care
Tributes – a gift in honor of someone – not only support the hospital, but often provide unexpected joy and recognition to the individual they honor. They may be gift in honor of a special occasion, to recognize extraordinary care, or to indicate your respect for a volunteer or caregiver.
We will notify the honoree(s) of your gift, and forward any special message that you would like to convey. We will notify the family or person you specify of memorial gifts, though we will not share the amount of the donations.
Please contact Development office with any questions at (413) 582-2255.
