Want to make a contribution in memory of a loved one?
Make your gift last forever by donating to one of more than 60 funds at the Foundation, or establish a new fund in their name. As a service to you, we will even send a sympathy letter to the family and/or friends of your loved one with information on what fund you donated to. Your loved one’s name will be listed in that year’s annual report.
Special funds can be created to handle tributes and memorials. Contributions may also be made to existing funds in order to:
- honor a living person
- memorialize deceased persons
- commemorate anniversaries or other special events
Donors can use this giving option to:
- create a scholarship fund acknowledging the contributions of a retiring teacher
- engage a civic group in creating an emergency relief fund for a disaster
- support the favorite charities of a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary
- create a youth program that keeps the memory of a deceased child
- add to an existing fund (click here for a list of funds)
- or your idea here.
Gifts to the fund may be made by check, cash, money order or other means.
