UPMC Jameson Junior Guild Remembrance Fund
The primary role of the UPMC Jameson Junior Guild, the hospital auxiliary, is to provide services to patients and to raise funds to improve health care services to the community. The guild has donated more than $6 million for building renovations and equipment since 1935.
The Remembrance Fund was created to provide individuals with the opportunity to memorialize beloved deceased members and to remember happy events in life such as weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, sacraments, and graduations.
Donations are used to purchase patient care equipment. When a contribution is made, a card is sent to the family or individual acknowledging that a donation was made in their memory or in their honor. The name of the person memorialized or honored is entered the Remembrance Fund Memorial Book with the date and donor’s name written. The book is kept in the UPMC Jameson Hostess Shop.
