Many donors honor the lives and achievements of their families and friends by making memorial and tribute gifts in their name.
Memorial Gifts. Memorial gifts are most often made to remember those who have died. They are a traditional way to remember loved ones and to support organizations that were dear to them. Acknowledgment cards are mailed to the family or other recipient to inform them of the memorial gift, and you receive a thank you card. The amount of your gift remains confidential.
Honor Gifts. You can choose to acknowledge someone who has had a significant impact on your life or to mark important events, such as the birth of a baby, a graduation, a wedding, or an anniversary. It is also a wonderful way to say thank you to someone special. A card is sent to the person in whose name the gift was made, notifying them of the gift in their honor. You receive a thank you card. The amount of your gift remains confidential.
You can make an honor or memorial gift by downloading and mailing us a donation form or by an online donation. (If you make an online donation, we will email you to thank you and to ask if you would like your gift to be a tribute gift. We will improve our system soon!)
