Tribute Giving Program
Text Size controlsNormal font sizeMedium font sizeLarge font size

Tribute gifts are those made in honor of someone you know or in memory of someone who has died. These gifts enable the Alzheimer’s Association to carry out its mission while keeping the memory of someone you love alive. 

When a birthday, anniversary, marriage, retirement, new job, promotion, religious celebration, honoring a parent, or other special event calls for a unique recognition, you can make a contribution to our Chapter in tribute, honor or memory of the occasion. 

Gifts in any amount are gratefully accepted. Your gift is acknowledged with a personalized card sent to the person or family in whose memory or honor the gift is made. There is no better way to keep a person's memory alive than by sustaining and improving the lives of others. Your gift is an eternal tribute that continues to comfort the family and friends while celebrating life. Don't forget it is tax deductible! Tribute gifts maybe made anytime throughout the year.

A tribute gift can be made as a cash donation to be put towards a particular need or desire.  The funds for a tribute gift can also be provided annually, for a recurring or other desired pledge, or as a named endowment fund.
