Honor someone

Memorial gifts commemorate the values and character of a loved one who has passed away, and honorary gifts show appreciation for an admired person who is still living. 

The University of Nebraska Foundation is the designated fundraising partner of Nebraska Medicine. Our Nebraska Medicine development specialists can help you determine the best options for honoring your loved one while supporting the health care network.  

If you have any questions regarding memorial and honorary gifts, please email us.
