Memorial Gifts

Memorial gifts provide a unique vehicle to honor special people and moments in your life.

Establishing a Fund for the Ages

Memorial gifts are a wonderful way for donors to honor those who have meant the most in their lives. Special funds can be created to pay tribute to a loved one, and in addition to the charitable impact, they offer the added bonus of perpetuating, ad infinitum, the memory of someone you hold so dear.

But Memorial gifts can also do so much more. Donors may also contribute to existing funds to:

  • Honor a living person
  • Commemorate an anniversary or other special event
  • Engage a civic group in creating an emergency relief fund for a disaster

When making a gift online you will be given the opportunity to make your gift in honor or in memory of someone or in honor of an event. If you provide us with contact information for the person or family being honored or memorialized, we will inform them that you have made a gift.

If you have questions about memorial or commemorative gifts, call or e-mail Kaylah Milligan, Program Associate & Assistant Director of Development, at 860.229.6018, x305.
