Honor Gifts

Donations made in honor of a person can be used to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, Mother’s or Father’s Day, or as a unique Christmas present. They can also mark a graduation, birth, or any special occasion.

When you make this kind of donation, simply indicate that you are making the donation “In Honor of” someone. If you give us a name and mailing address, we will send the person or family member a notice of your donation.

Memorial Gifts

For someone who has passed away, a donation made in memory of them can be made by friends and family in lieu of flowers.
