Memorial and Tribute Gifts
Some donors honor or memorialize a loved one in order to celebrate a special event in someone’s life, or to remember a departed relative or friend.
Your gift to Goodwill can be made in honor or in memory of someone important to you. Simply include the following information with your gift:
- Specify whether the gift is a tribute or a memorial.
- Provide the name of the person you wish to recognize or remember.
- Provide the name(s) of the person(s) you wish Goodwill to notify of your gift.
- Be sure to clearly mark the name(s) of the donor(s) as well as the additional name(s) and address(es) to which Goodwill should send notification of the gift.
Goodwill does not include the amount of your gift in the notification that we send to others, but does provide other details including the donor's name, and the name of the person in whose honor or memory the gift was made.
Tribute gifts are meaningful ways to make gifts with special impact and meaning. Groups may wish to consider making tribute gifts to Goodwill in lieu of presents for someone's next birthday or holiday celebration!
Thank you for remembering a friend or loved one through supporting Goodwill in its mission to provide not charity, but a chance to thousands of individuals each year!
And, thank you!
