Memorial and Honor Gifts

Make a contribution in memory or honor of a loved one.

MEMORIAL GIVING
Join us as we honor and remember the special people in our lives whose spirit lives in all we do! Many of our patient families have asked us how to include information in an obituary that would suggest gifts be made to VNA Health. If you would like to do this, the following is a sample of wording you may want to use:“In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to VNA Health at 509 E. Montecito Street, Suite 200, Santa Barbara, CA 93103 or by visiting their website at www.vna.health.”
SERENITY HOUSE MEMORIAL GARDEN WALL
Serenity House is a beautiful place to honor a loved one’s memory. The Serenity House grounds are welcome to the public for families and loved ones to visit at any time. If you would like to place a leaf plaque in honor or memory of a loved one on the Serenity House Memorial Garden Wall, [as pictured on top of page] or inquire other Serenity House naming opportunities, please contact Rebecca Benard, Foundation Executive Director, at 805.690.6222 or rebecca.benard@vna.health. Leaf plaques begin at a donation of $5,000.
Appreciation Garden

VNA Health is honored to receive gifts in honor or memory of a loved one. Please click here to make a gift and have your loved one’s name placed in our beautiful online Appreciation Garden. We will send a card to the family member or friend you designate to let them know of your gift (amount is not included).

Honorees are listed in blue, while those being remembered are listed in purple. Oriented left to right, top to bottom, the first names are listed alphabetically. Every Friday, names are added to the garden and they are refreshed seasonally.
