Give a Gift in Memory or Honor of Someone.
A financial gift given in memory of someone is a very thoughtful way to express sympathy for the loss of a special person. You can make a Memorial Donation in honor of a family member, friend, neighbor or co-worker. We will send a note to the family and to you acknowledging your gift.
You can also give a gift in honor of someone to celebrate a special occasion (i.e., birthday, anniversary, baptism, graduation, etc.) or just to honor their lives. A note will be sent to the honoree and to you acknowledging your gift.
Memorial or Honorarium Gifts may be either designated or undesignated:
Gifts that are designated for a specific purpose, i.e., to purchase an item(s) from our approved “Gifts and Memorial List” (see below), are designated gifts. If you wish to purchase an item that is not on the list, you may submit a proposal to church council for approval. We encourage you to consult with the pastor if you are considering a designated gift.
Undesignated gifts are placed in the Memorial Fund and used by the church council to purchase special items. Please consider allocating at least a portion of any gift to this category.
