Gifts of Remembrance
Throughout your life you meet special people whom you admire, respect and love. Memorial Gifts and Tribute Gifts allow you to thoughtfully remember parents, grandparents, mentors, or anyone who have been a vital part of your life.
The legacy of the individual you choose to remember or 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.
Arrange a Memorial
Memorial Gifts are a meaningful way to remember honor the life of a deceased loved one. This charitable gift to the Claretians will stand as a lasting memorial to a loved one and at the same time support the Claretians’ our ministry efforts in a very meaningful way.
When you arrange a Memorial Gift, you have the option of having a beautiful card sent directly to the family of the deceased (recipient). The family will know that their loved one has been remembered in a special way. The amount of your gift is never mentioned.
Arrange a Tribute
Tribute Gifts are presented to honor people during their lifetime. This gift provides a thoughtful way to express gratitude or recognize those 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, you have the option of having a beautiful card sent directly to the honoree (recipient). They will know that they have been honored in a special way. The amount of your gift is never mentioned.
