Tribute Gifts


Make a gift today in honor of or in memory of a loved one. 

Honor someone special

Thank someone special, or honor a friend or family member by giving a tribute gift in their name. What better way to express your affection and appreciation, and benefit your community, too?


Remember a loved one

A tribute gift in remembrance of your loved one is a meaningful way to honor and celebrate their life and legacy. Or show someone you care following the loss of their loved one by making a memorial gift in their name.

Celebrate a memorable event

Your gift can commemorate a myriad of events - birth of a child or grandchild, weddings, b’nai mitzvahs, anniversaries, graduations, promotions, awards, and honors. Celebrate by giving a gift that benefits the entire Jewish community.


Whether you make your gift by phone, mail, or online, we will gratefully acknowledge your thoughtful donation by notifying the person or family member you designate with an acknowledgment card (no gift amount will be disclosed).
