Memorials & Tributes

Our donors help us serve all patients, regardless of their ability to pay, through their donations to Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation.

Through memorials and tributes, you can honor someone special, such as a family member, friend, or someone who made an impact in your life. You can also honor a special occasion or even a Lower Cape Fear Hospice employee or volunteer who provided outstanding care or service.

Memorial and Tribute Donation Opportunities

Memorial Giving

Make a donation to Lower Cape Fear Hospice Foundation in memory of your loved one. The Foundation will acknowledge your donation and notify the caregiver and/or person of your choice that you have made a gift. (Your gift amount will stay confidential). Tributes in memory of a loved one or special friend are offered through a gift, or combination of gifts of $1,000 or more.

In Tribute

If you are honoring a loved one, employee, or occasion, the Foundation will acknowledge your donation and notify the special person that you have made a gift in his or her honor, or the occasion if applicable. (Your gift amount will stay confidential).

Every memorial donation given in memory of an individual goes toward his or her Tribute.

Lower Cape Fear Hospice Tributes

To honor and recognize the cherished memories of someone you love, Lower Cape Fear Hospice has created a remembrance at each of  its hospice care centers.  Each tribute plaque has a name etched and permanently installed through a gift, or combination of gifts totaling $1,000 or more.

Continuum Tribute Wall in the Heritage Garden in Wilmington, NC 

The Continuum Tribute Wall, located in our Heritage Garden on the Wilmington campus, was designed by Toby Keeton and Michael Kersting at Kersting Architecture. The structure is meant to reflect how the individual journeys of our lives leave an indelible mark on the world—as with nature, our journeys ebb and flow.

Butterfly Pavilion in the Children’s Memorial Garden in Wilmington, NC 

Three different size butterflies, sculpted by local artist Dumay Gorham, float under the roof of the pavilion above a chrysalis sculpture in the middle of the Children’s Memorial Garden.  Butterflies are a symbol of rebirth and transformation. The life cycle of a butterfly is marked by change; each stage – egg, caterpillar, chrysalis, and adult – is radically different from what comes before. These butterflies remind us of the ever-changing stages of our lives.

The Heritage Garden in Wilmington, NC 

Nature often speaks to us in ways that people cannot. Sometimes, sounds of comfort outweigh words of comfort. Patients, family and friends visiting the Heritage Garden, at the Dr. Robert M. Fales Hospice Pavilion, find a beautiful space that feels safe, restorative, healing, strengthening, even empowering.

Together we can make a difference

We are the regional hospice of choice for thousands of patients. We are a nonprofit hospice, meaning we help everyone regardless of their ability to pay. This is only possible through the generous donations from people like you.

Funding goes to help us provide grief support, hospice and palliative care, capital needs, spiritual care and special programs for veterans.

“Rather than spread our charitable income among many nonprofits, we try to focus our philanthropic endeavors on one organization we feel would be a good partner in fostering growth and community. As a nonprofit that gives so much crucial support to the community, Lower Cape Fear Hospice was an obvious choice for us. Also, many of our friends and loved ones have had that personal connection to hospice, so we understand the importance of the care they provide.”

Alan Kerry, LCFH supporter
