Named Gifts

Sometimes when you want to show someone how much you care, it can be difficult to find the right gift to express your feelings. Consider giving a Named Gift, sometimes called a commemorative gift. This gift is a gift of recognition and celebration of a person close to you. It may honor a living person, remember someone who has died, or celebrate an event like a birthday, wedding, anniversary, graduation, retirement, or special holiday.

Gifts from the heart are appropriate for many occasions:

  • in memory of a relative, friend, neighbor, business associate, or a special person
  • to honor a birthday, anniversary, birth of a child, graduation, or any occasion
  • to send get well wishes
  • to say “thank you”
  • to remember

To say thank you… Many members of HPNA and families whose loved ones received their care feel a special gratitude. A gift to the Foundation is a wonderful way to say thank you to nurses, other staff, and volunteers, while honoring the work they do.
