A gift given in honor of someone special is a lasting tribute to the important role he or she plays in your life. It is a wonderful way to establish a link with the past and promote a vision for the future.
Many people honor an adopted child or give a gift in memory of a family member who has passed away. An honor or memorial gift will be acknowledged to the family of the person for whom the gift is named.
Many forms of charitable giving can be used for honorariums and memorials. Outright gifts as well as gifts made through a will are common; but other alternatives – such as endowing an annual gift, now or through your will – can also be effective.
Creating a memorial gift is a very personal decision that you will probably want to discuss with those close to you. We are happy to assist you in formulating a plan that will honor your intentions and help you to realize the maximum advantages from such a gift.
