Memorial Program

When death separates us from those we love, one of the ways we can honor his or her memory is through a memorial gift.


All memorial funds are ran through Citizens Foundation where the funds are used to support the mission of Citizens Medical Center, Inc. to “Enhance the Lives of Those We Serve.” As a non-profit organization, memorials and other forms of donations make it possible for us to provide outstanding quality care to our residents and patients. All donations are tax deductible.


  1. Starting a memorial fund is quick and easy.
  2. Contact Megan Carmichael, Foundation Executive Director @ (785)460-1214; email or complete the form (link below) and return to Citizens Foundation 100 E. College Dr. Colby, KS 67701.
  3. Memorial gifts are prompted by messages in obituaries and/or programs, “The family suggest memorials to Citizens Foundation, 100 E. College Drive Colby, KS 67701.”
  4. Determine how you would like the memorial funds to be used using the list on the form. You may also contact Megan to discuss other options.
  5. The Citizens Foundation recognizes memorial funds in a loved one’s name on our memorial board when the total reaches at least $500.

We are honored that you have chosen to honor your loved one through our Memorial Program. You are paying tribute to a loved one while also helping support our goals to provide the best possible care - for you, for your family and for our community.
