Memorial and Honorary Gifts

Gifts made to one of our funds in memory or in honor of a special person can be a meaningful way to give back to our community.

You will receive a gift receipt for your donation.

Honorary Gifts

You can acknowledge someone’s birthday, anniversary, wedding or celebrate a holiday by making a gift in honor of that person to one of our funds.  

The recipient will receive a personalized letter from The Foundation explaining a gift has been made in his or her honor. The letter also will describe the specific fund that was supported, and how it helps our community.

We will keep the amount of the gift anonymous unless you request otherwise.

Memorial Gifts

Those who want to remember a loved one can donate to an existing fund in that person’s name, or create a new fund.

At your request, we will send a personalized letter to the person’s family members or friends explaining that a thoughtful gift has been made to a fund at The Foundation in memory of the loved one.

The amount of the contribution will be kept confidential.
