Honorariums & Memorials

You may wish to provide a gift in honor of someone special — perhaps for a birthday or anniversary celebration. The person who is being honored by your donation will receive a letter acknowledging that you have honored him or her in this way. You will also receive an acknowledgment of your gift that can be used for tax purposes.

Some choose to make a donation in memory of a loved one. Memorial gifts will be acknowledged and the appropriate person notified of your donation.
