Question:

What do you get the person who has – and means – everything?

Answer:

Tribute and memorial gifts allow you to honor a special person and assist us in fulfilling our mission at the same time.

Tribute gifts are often made on traditional gift giving occasions, but can also be used as a thoughtful way to say thanks or to recognize a noteworthy achievement or a milestone reached. Just let us know that your gift is in honor of a special person, and we will announce your gift to the honoree – without stating the amount.

Memorial gifts serve as a lasting tribute to the important role a lost loved one played in your life. It is also a meaningful way to show family and friends left behind that you remember their loved one and wish to help them create a permanent legacy. Memorial gifts can be made by cash or stocks, or even by specifically designating a bequest in your will.
