An acknowledgement of your gift will be sent to the honoree. These gifts can be designated for the unrestricted fund or any of the specific funds.
Memorial gifts are given in memory of a special person and show appreciation of their life and contributions. This type of gift offers a meaningful way to pay lasting tribute to the memory of a person while also extending sympathy to the family. An acknowledgement of your contribution will be sent to the family. These gifts can be designated for the unrestricted fund, or any of the funds.
