Consider making a gift to pay tribute to the lives and accomplishments of your loved ones, friends, neighbors, co-workers and employees, while showing your support for Rady Children’s. Your tax-deductible gift will be used to provide care for the children and families of our community.

Each tribute will be handwritten, in calligraphy, in a leather-bound book, displayed in the Rose Pavilion at Rady Children’s. A personalized notification of your gift (without indicating the amount) will be sent to the person being paid tribute, or to the family or friends of the person being remembered.

If you’re planning a celebration, in lieu of party favors, consider making a donation to Rady Children’s on behalf of your guests. We’ll send the cards (one hard copy version or several e-cards to choose from) so your guests can appreciate what you have made possible in their name.

Don’t need another gift? Consider asking your guests to donate to Rady Children’s in honor of your celebration. You can provide inserts that you create, to send along with your invitations.


Throughout the year, celebrate a variety of holidays and mark important, special occasions (wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, baby shower, birthday, graduation, etc.) with loved ones, friends, family, neighbors, co-workers and employees by honoring them with an eCard in their name to Rady Children’s. Your thoughtfulness, through a suggested minimum gift of $15 will help provide support for the children of our community who need it most.

Celebration Tiles

The creation of a permanent Celebration Tile is available for cash contributions of $5,000 or more to Rady Children's. The amount can be a single gift or the total amount donated by family and friends. These charming 8”x 8” ceramic tiles, displayed in the Rady Children’s Rose Pavilion can be replicas of a child's artwork or designed by the donor. It is the ultimate gift to children and families who see these tiles every day and benefit from the hope, joy, whimsy, and love portrayed in each tile. In addition to the tiles' permanent placement in the Rose Pavilion, the honoree's name is written in calligraphy in a leather-bound book, displayed in the Rose Pavilion.
