Special Recognition

Tribute Plaques

Children's is honored to publically recognize tribute gifts of $1,000 or more on our "Dedicated to Our Stars" tribute walls at Children's – Minneapolis or Children's – St. Paul. Each tribute wall combines the beautiful sentiments conveyed on hundreds of personalized tribute plaques with original artwork commissioned especially for Children's. Together, these elements create a meaningful display that remembers and celebrates the special people and occasions in our lives.

Once an individual, family, or group has collected $1,000 in tribute donations, they are eligible to receive a personalized tribute tile on one of Children's "Dedicated to Our Stars" tribute walls. To learn more about creating a personalized tribute plaque or to obtain a tribute plaque order form, please contact the Children's Foundation at (651) 855-2800.

Tribute gifts are a heartfelt way to honor a loved one, celebrate a meaningful milestone, or remember those who have touched our lives.
