One way you can express your sympathy and respect for your loved one is by giving a memorial or tribute gift in that person’s memory or honor.
If you would like to direct honor or memorial gifts to one of our Foundations, please designate who the gift is in honor or memory of and the fund you would like to support. A gift can be made in honor or memory of a loved one to any fund of your choosing. If an address is provided, we will send a letter to the family notifying them of your gift, although not the amount. All donors will receive a formal acknowledgement letter for tax purposes.
When arrangements are made with the funeral home and the newspaper, the wording most often used is "In lieu of flowers/gifts, contributions in memory/celebration of <NAME> can be made to: [Foundation Name and address.]"
See below for a list of our Foundations and addresses. Please call the Foundation directly if you have additional questions or wish to designate your gift to a particular fund.
