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 Brittany Avila Wazny, Director of Development, at 805.690.6290 or brittany.avila@vna.health. Leaf plaques begin at a donation of $5,000.
Appreciation Garden

VNA Health is honored to receive contributions in memory or honor of a loved one. Please click here to make a gift and have your loved one’s name placed in our lovely online Appreciation Garden. We will send a card to the family member or friend you designate to let them know of your gift.

Please wander through our garden with names listed alphabetically by first name from top to bottom, left to right. The Blue names are being honored, and the Purple names are being memorialized. Please click here to make a gift and have your loved one’s name placed in the lovely garden. Our garden names are refreshed seasonally.
