Making a Memorial Gift

Commemorative gifts are a thoughtful way to honor or memorialize a loved one while supporting a cause you believe in. Your memorial gift can establish an endowment, renew a scholarship, or help fund other projects.

There are several ways to establish a memorial gift, including:

  • Making an outright gift to a campaign or fund at any time
  • Making a bequest in your will to provide funding after your lifetime
  • Setting up an endowment to fund a special program or project in perpetuity

Recognition for a memorial or tribute depends on the gift. For more information, please contact our NRES giving officer:
