Honor a Loved One

Honor a friend, recognize a caregiver, or remember a loved one by making a gift to Duke Health. 

A memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember, honor, or celebrate someone important to you. Memorial gifts keep the memory of your loved one alive and have lasting impact.

An honorary gift is a powerful way to express your love and make a difference. Honorary gifts can be made in lieu of flowers, in honor of a birthday, anniversary, or graduation, or just to thank a special friend. You also can honor your physician, nurse, or caregiver or show your gratitude for the care you or someone you love received at Duke Health.

Your contributions help pay for the following:

  • State-of-the-art equipment and facilities that enable us to provide our patients with the best treatment available today.
  • Recruitment of leading physicians and researchers.
  • Fellowships designed to retain and train the next generation of physicians and surgeons.
  • The Center in a specific medical specialty or area of patient need.

And much, much more.
