Donating in honor of an important person or in memory of someone who passed away supports Rush in its mission to provide excellent medical care, conduct groundbreaking research, offer transformative education and improve health for the diverse communities we serve.

  • Help you select an area of Rush to support 
  • Craft language to include in an obituary and create a personalized giving link you can share with family and friends 
  • Print customized giving envelopes  
  • Provide you with a weekly list of all the honor donors and their addresses if you wish to send personal thank you notes
