Palmer Memorial Foundation
All gifts, large or small, assist Gundersen Palmer Lutheran Hospital and Clinics in providing quality healthcare close to home to the residents of West Union, Hawkeye, Fayette, Eldorado, Elgin, Clermont, Wadena, Postville, Calmar and other surrounding communities.
In addition, Palmer Memorial Foundation believes in giving back to the communities that have so graciously given to its cause. The Foundation promotes projects that encourage safe and healthy choices by providing gifts to local civic groups and organizations and sponsoring many local community initiatives.
Without generous donors Palmer Memorial Foundation would not be able to carry out these wonderful community projects or continue to make important medical improvements. Donations made to Palmer Memorial Foundation will be cherished and valued throughout the years to come.

Donations, Memorials, & Honorarium
A gift to the Foundation is a lasting tribute. Whether honoring someone who has made a difference in your life or to celebrate the memory of a loved one, the most satisfying gift is the one that continues to give.
Tree of Life
A leaf on the Tree of Life may be purchased with a $100 or more donation. Leaves can be personalized with the name of someone who has inspired you or made a difference in your life, or with your name or any other person(s) that you choose.
Annually, Palmer Memorial Foundation decorates a tribute tree with personalized holiday ornaments. Donors may purchase ornaments to honor those who have enriched their lives or remember loved ones that are dearly missed.
Circle of Life
Circle of Life is a gift planning program with which a donor may make a charitable bequest in their personal will. This bequest may include leaving a specific dollar amount, a certain percentage of your personal estate, or a specified number of shares of stock that you own to Palmer Memorial Foundation.
Each year, Palmer Memorial Foundation holds fundraisers important to sustaining the vitality of the Foundation. Participation and attendance to these events ensures the continued growth of the Foundation.
