Thoughtful Giving

The Thoughtful Giving program provides a way to honor a person or an event-or memorialize someone you care about and wish to remember in a special way.

This program is the perfect way to thank the nurses or nursing units, who have been so important to
you. A donation designated to the Center for Nursing Excellence through the Healthcare Foundation will support and encourage their commitment to innovative nursing practices, education and programs.

The person(s) honored will receive a letter announcing your special gift in their honor. If your gift is in memory of a friend or loved one, a card will be sent to their family. The amount of your gift will not be mentioned and you will receive an acknowledgement for your personal record keeping.

Your thoughtfulness is a gift from the heart to those you care about and a lasting investment in the future of Sarasota Memorial Healthcare Foundation, Inc. and Sarasota Memorial Hospital.

Matching Gifts
Many companies will match the gifts of their current and former employees. When a donor makes a gift, he/she also needs to include a matching gift form from their company.
