Memorial & Honor Gifts

A memorial gift in the name of a deceased person comforts loved ones.

An honor gift celebrates a special occasion or says thank you. Weddings, anniversaries, birthdays, and holidays take on new meaning when your gift brings help and hope to someone in need.

We will send a card without disclosing the gift amount. You will receive a charitable donation receipt for your tax records.

How to Give

You can make a memorial or honor gift on the General Donations page. First choose an amount. Click "add donation." A new page opens where you select "tribute gift" and complete the gift details. Click here to give now.
