Build a Legacy

As you look for a unique and memorable way to remember a loved one, mark an occasion, or honor a person, consider a Tribute Gift to the Tribute Foundation.

Our Tribute Program was established to help you recognize those people who have touched your life in a special way.

Choose either a Gift of Remembrance or Gift of Honor and Celebration as a unique way to honor someone special while demonstrating your belief in the Tribute Foundation’s work.

The NYS Tribute Foundation is your opportunity to build a legacy and to share the good work accomplished daily by those in the funeral service profession.

With your help, the Foundation will act as a resource supporting educational programs, financial scholarships, industry research and special projects that advance the understanding of end-of-life issues.

Please consider supporting the Foundation at the level most appropriate for you. Your tax-deductible contribution may be made in one payment, quarterly, or as part of your estate planning.

Through your contribution, you can be confident that you have touched other lives and made a positive difference in your state and the funeral service profession!
