Tribute and Memorial Gifts

If you or a loved one has been touched by Silver Cross, establishing a tribute or memorial gift is a meaningful way to honor someone or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary while supporting the Hospital. Your gift will be a lasting honor and make a difference in the lives of our patients.

Remember Loved Ones

Express sympathy by making a gift to the Silver Cross Foundation in memory of a friend or loved one. Simply invite others to give by using the following sample language in the obituary:

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Silver Cross Foundation. Please send memorial gifts to 1900 Silver Cross Boulevard, New Lenox, IL 60451 or give online at

Please notify the Silver Cross Foundation if you plan to have memorial gifts designated to a specific hospital service or program. If you are a member of the family or funeral home and would like to request specific memorial donation envelopes or would like more information, email or call (815) 300-7105.

    Did one of our staff go above and beyond in caring for you or a loved one? Make a donation in his or her name. Tribute gifts are a great way to say thank you.

      Give Thanks

        Physicians on Silver Cross Hospital’s Medical Staff have expertise in their areas of practice to meet the needs of patients seeking their care. These physicians are independent practitioners on the Medical Staff and are not the agents or employees of Silver Cross Hospital. They treat patients based upon their independent medical judgment and they bill patients separately for their services.
