Tribute Gifts and Memorials

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Gifts to Marshfield Clinic Health System can be designated in memory or honor of a loved one, friend, neighbor, co-worker or anyone you wish to remember or honor in this special way.  ​​

Honorees are listed on our website​ and in our BenchMarks magazine, which is published three times per year.  Individuals with ​gifts made in their memory or honor totaling $1,000 or more are also listed on the donor recognition display in the Main Lobby of the Marshfield Clinic Marshfield Center.

​Tribute gifts can be made online or mailed to Marshfield Clinic (donation form). Simply provide the name of the person(s) you are memorializing or honoring and a contact name and address to whom we can send notice of your gift. We will not disclose the amount given.

If the person you wish to honor is a Marshfield Clinic employee, you can make a gift through the Shining Star Program.

  • "The family requests that memorials donations be made to Marshfield Clinic (for fund or interest of choice, such as cancer research), Attn: MCHS Foundation, 1000 N Oak Ave, Marshfield, WI 54​449."

    or

Memorial gifts received by the family may be sent to Marshfield Clinic at the address above or delivered to the Foundation, which is located on the first floor of the Lawton Center on the Marshfield Clinic Center campus. Arrangements can also be made for us to pick up memorials you have received by calling (715) 387-9249 or (800) 858-5220. Please include the names and addresses of the memorial donors so that we may acknowledge the donors and provide them with information needed for tax filing purposes.

We will advise the family of any memorials sent directly to MCHS Foundation. The dollar amount will not be disclosed, but we will provide the name and address of the donors in the event the family would like to acknowledge those memorial gifts as well.
