Honor / Memorial Gifts

There is no finer way to honor the memory of a loved one, celebrate a special event in the life of someone close to you, or show your appreciation for a person who has touched your life than to provide for the needs of others.

Each gift received by Baylor College of Medicine is acknowledged to the person, or to the family of the person, in whose honor or memory the gift was made. The gift amount remains confidential. A separate receipt is sent to the donor. All gifts are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

Below is suggested wording for memorial donations:

(In lieu of flowers), memorial donations can be made payable to Baylor College of Medicine and mailed to (insert department or research program), c/o Office of Philanthropy and Alumni Relations, MSC #800, P.O. Box 4976, Houston, TX 77210. Secure online gifts may be made by credit card at www.bcm.edu/giving

Matching Gifts

Many companies have programs that match all or part of their employees' philanthropic donations. Some employers extend this benefit to retired employees. Before making your next gift to Baylor, check with your employer to determine its policy on matching gifts.

To initiate the process, obtain a matching gift form from your employer and send it to Baylor with your gift or pledge. The College will complete the matching gift process and send both the donor and the company receipts for tax purposes.
