Tribute Giving

Looking for a thoughtful way to honor someone special? Consider making a tribute gift to honor a family member or friend, remember a loved one or thank someone whose care made a difference for you and your family.

You can make your gift in someone’s honor or memory through our secure online giving form (there's an area on the form to note this) or you can tell us in writing when you mail your check, made payable to the UMass Chan Medical School Foundation, to the Office of Advancement at UMass Chan Medical School. 

Gifts in memory

When a loved one passes away, a family may decide to direct memorial gifts to UMass Chan Medical School. These gifts can be designated as the family wishes: unrestricted support for either institution or restricted support for a specific center, program or physician.

If you and your family decide to direct gifts in memory of a loved one to UMass Chan Medical School, please contact us by email (giving@umassmed.edu) with the name of the deceased, how the gifts should be designated, and the family contact information so we can notify your family when gifts are made.
