You may choose to honor a loved one’s passing by making a donation in his/her name, or by directing Memorial gifts to the Eye Institute. We hope that the knowledge that these gifts will be used to help our scientist find cures for blinding eye diseases will be of comfort to you and your family. You may even designate that gifts in your loved one's memory support research on a specific disease (ie. macular degeneration, glaucoma, etc.).
When writing an obituary you may include the phrase: "Memorial gifts to support the Eye Institute can be made to the Medical College of Wisconsin. Gifts may be sent to the Office of Development, Eye Institute, 925 N. 87th Street, Milwaukee, WI 53226." Memorial gift envelopes are also available.
All donors are provided with a receipt for their generosity and extended a note of gratitude in compliance with IRS requirements. Please alert us to the name and address of the family of the deceased so we may provide them with the names and addresses of the donors who have chosen to make a gift.
Please call Diane Bishop at (414) 955-7821 in advance of the memorial service and she will be able to help answer any questions you may have about donations to the Eye Institute.
