Because these donations are such an important tribute, we also like to share notification of the memorial gifts we receive in your loved one's memory. For this reason, we ask that a family member or friend contact the Development Department at (207) 283-7251 or hflaherty@smhc.org to provide the following information:

  • Name of your loved one
  • Name of surviving family contact (who we will notify by mail when gifts are received)
  • Mailing address for this family contact
  • If the funds should be directed to a specific program

We will notify your family contact of any gifts we receive, and provide you with the name and address of the thoughtful donors. Please note, the amount of the gift is not disclosed to the honoree’s family. Donors themselves also receive a thank you letter with a tax receipt.

Recurring gifts are an easy way to give more by spreading your gift throughout the year.
