Commemorative Giving Program
Sylvester offers a number of commemorative giving opportunities designed to celebrate a loved one or a special friend while supporting research programs at our cancer center. Tribute gifts at Sylvester provide much-needed funds for our groundbreaking research projects.
Coupons for a Cure Tribute & Memorial Program
Gifts of $10 or more can be made in honor or in memory of an individual or group. Tribute and memorial gifts are a popular way to make a thoughtful gift recognizing a friend or family member while showing support for the cancer center. In response to each gift, a personalized card is sent to the honoree or the honoree’s family to notify them of the gift. To make a tribute gift, call 305-243-9088 or donate online through our secure form. When making a donation online, please remember to include in the comments section which card you would like the recipient to receive.
Memorial Donations in Obituaries
At the time of a loved one’s passing, families may choose to suggest in the obituary that donations be made to Sylvester. If that is the case, please include a mention of the memorial donation in the obituary. Here is some sample wording:
In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center in memory of [Name]. Checks should be made payable to Sylvester and mailed to Sylvester Development Office, P.O. Box 016960 (M-867), Miami, FL 33101.
“In Honor” gifts can be made in lieu of birthday and anniversary presents, or to recognize a retirement, wedding, graduation, job promotion, birthday or other special occasion. A certificate is prepared for the honoree recognizing the special occasion and including the names of all who made donations in the person’s honor.
