December 7, 1961 HOSPITAL NEWS BULLETIN Page Three Designated Memorials Make Your Giving More Significant Memorial gifts or living tribute gifts by corporations, business firms, families or individuals bring more satisfo.ction to those \vho make them BECAUSE THEY ARE MORE SIGNIFICANT. Such gifts possess a value of their own which cannot be readily measured. Gifts put into a general building fund can never be as significant as those designated for a portion of the hospiial or for certain equipment that is critically needed and happily provided by those who can afford to consider such giving. All corporate and individual giving until now in the Palmer Memorial Hospital Building Program has been made more significant by a choice of memorials or tributes to fit each pledge. Such gifts are permanently identified with the names of the donors. The specific portions of the hospital, the equipment or furnishings chosen are dedico.ted to these corporations, firms or individuals. A suitable plaque naming the giver or the person in whose memory or honor the gift is made will be set up and placed subject to the wishes of the donor. • MASTER BUILDERS' MEMORIAL PLAQUES In addition to the memorials or tributes which identify a chosen gift, there will be Master Builders' Memorials. These, without specific designation, also will denote a gift of remembrance and service. Plaques approximately two by five inches, engraved with the names both of those remembered or honored and the donors will be mounted on a Master Builders' Plaque, in an appropriate place. Such Master Builders' Memorials are $750, which may be pledged on the basis of $250 annually for three years. • BUILDERS'HONOR SCROLL There also will be Builders' Honor Scroll inscriptions bearing the names of givers. These too, will be mounted on a central large plaque. They are $360 and like other gifts, may be broken down into 36 monthly paymetns or given at $120 annually for three years. To make it easier for givers to select memorials or tributes, the next two pages contain plans that are keyed by figures corresponding to the memorial-tribute list for the Palmer Memorial Hospital Expansion Program.
