Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts are expressions to remember and honor the memory of a friend or loved one. The individual or family named by the donor receives a special acknowledgement that a gift has been made in their name. The amount of your gift will not be disclosed to the family or honoree.

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer opportunities to match the charitable gifts of their employees and retirees, including spouses. Matching gifts can enhance the value of your gift while helping Telluride Medical Center maintain its high-quality patient care.

Named Gifts

Named gifts can honor and recognize loved ones and perpetuate the name of an individual, a family, a business or an organization. There are numerous naming opportunities available throughout Telluride Medical Center including buildings, Electronic Medical Records for the Emergency Department, Handicap Ramp and the New Wellness Annex.

Honor Your Caregiver

Gifts can be made in honor of physicians, nurses and other caregivers who provided special care to you or your loved ones at the Telluride Medical Center.


Gifts of appreciated securities may offer you substantial tax advantages and help you to make a larger gift at less cost.
