Gifts of Remembrance
Throughout your life you meet special people whom you admire, respect and love. Memorial or tribute gifts allow you to thoughtfully remember parents, grandparents, or mentors who have been a vital part of your life.
The legacy of the individual you choose to honor will live on through Claretian ministry efforts made possible by these special gifts. The gifts we give back in ministry include serving people of all ages and economic backgrounds so that they might find the presence of God in their lives, and so that they might have the most important basic human needs of health care, education, food, and spiritual guidance. We do this in the U.S. and throughout the world.
Arrange a Memorial
Memorial gifts are a meaningful way to honor the life of a deceased loved one. This charitable gift to the Claretians will stand as a living memorial to a loved one and at the same time support our ministry efforts in a very meaningful way.
When you arrange a Memorial gift, a beautiful card is promptly sent directly to the family of the deceased. The family knows that their loved one has been honored in a special way. The amount of your gift is never mentioned.
Celebrate the Life of Someone Special
Tribute gifts are presented to honor people during their lifetime. This gift provides a thoughtful way to express gratitude or recognize people who make a difference in our lives such as a special teacher, doctor, or volunteer in a program that you support. A Tribute gift can also be arranged to honor a friend, relative or colleague celebrating a special occasion such as a wedding, birthday, graduation or anniversary.
When you arrange a Tribute gift, a beautiful card is promptly sent directly to the honoree. They will know that they have been honored in a special way. The amount of your gift is never mentioned.
