Make a Tribute Gift


A Tribute Gift to Lurie Children's is a unique way to recognize someone dear to you, memorialize the passing of an individual who has affected your life or celebrate a special occasion.

Ways to Make a Tribute Gift

  • Make a tribute gift online.
  • Complete our donation form.
    You can mail the form along with your Tribute Gift to:
    Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital Chicago Foundation
    Department 4589
    Carol Stream, Illinois 60122
  • Create a fundraising page.
    Provide a meaningful way for you, your family and friends to support Lurie Children’s. With your own personal online page, you can fundraise by sharing your story and photos, while creating a lasting tribute to a loved one.

Gifts in Honor or in Memory of a Loved One

When you make a gift to the Tribute Program, the family or individual whom you are honoring can be notified of your thoughtfulness with a personalized acknowledgment, if requested. In return, you can be assured your gift is supporting the excellent programs and services offered at the hospital.

Special Occasions

A Tribute Gift is the perfect way to celebrate life's important milestones. Whether it's a birthday, wedding, bar/bat mitzvah or anniversary, a Tribute Gift is a meaningful way to show your appreciation to those who have touched and inspired you.

Honoring your guests

A growing number of individuals are choosing to make a donation to Lurie Children’s in lieu of favors. This allows individuals the option of several cards that can be customized and used to notify guests that a contribution was made in their honor. Generally, a $3-$5 contribution is recommended per place card.

In lieu of gifts

Another option for individuals is to request that guests make a donation to Lurie Children’s rather than giving a gift. The Tribute Program offers customizable inserts that can be enclosed within invitations to notify invitees of your wish.

Make your holiday cards exceptional

Make a donation to Lurie Children’s while honoring someone special by developing a tribute gift in their name. Or honor everyone on your holiday card list by including a customizable insert. Your gift will give hope to our patients this holiday season and beyond.

Gifts of Love

We are honored to place your loved one's name on our Gifts of Love plaque, located in Lurie Children's lobby, when memorial contributions reach $1,000 or more. The plaque, dedicated each spring, serves as a meaningful way to remember individuals who have touched your life and inspired hope to the patients and families we serve.
