Give a gift to honor someone

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

Memorial and honorary gifts to benefit Nebraska Medicine are a meaningful way to celebrate someone, including family members and friends.

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