Give a gift or memorial – change someone’s life
Give a gift that’s memorable. Instead of the usual birthday, anniversary, Mother’s Day or holiday gift, why not honor someone with the gift of changing another person’s life for years to come. We gratefully accept memorials to honor a loved one’s memory.
Use the DONATE button, top right. On mobiles, scroll down. Put your gift choice from below in the special instructions with the name & address (or email address) of the person receiving the gift. We’ll send a gift acknowledgement describing the impact their gift makes. For example: #1 Jane Doe, 311 Main St, Anywhere, OH 45111. For multiple gifts, send all giftee info to firstname.lastname@example.org.
