Make a lasting tribute to a friend, colleague, or loved one. A gift “in honor” of someone is usually made while that person is living. A gift “in memory” is the term used when the namesake is deceased.
There are many ways to make a commemorative gift. All the financial strategies of planned giving apply, or you may make an outright gift. Specific recognition opportunities are available.
