Ways to Give

The Gift of Remembrance

Throughout our lives we encounter people who touch our hearts and souls. They change us in many ways and out lives are forever enriched by their presence.

When death takes these special people from us, we take comfort in finding a way to honor their lives.

By remembering someone with a Gift of Remembrance – a memorial donation made in the name of someone you have lost – you will formally and perpetually express your esteem for that special person.

That person’s memory will live on through the valuable work of the NYS Tribute Foundation.

Gift of Remembrance donations will be recognized with:

Acknowledgement: The NYS Tribute Foundation will send a written acknowledgment to the individual(s) or families you designate, notifying them of your thoughtful gesture. The acknowledgment card will highlight the name of the person for whom the gift was given and the name(s) of the person(s) who made the gift. The amount of your tax deductible contribution (as provided by law) will not be stated on the card unless specifically requested.
Recognition: All gifts, donors and the person(s) being honored will be highlighted in the “Tributes” section in the NYS Funeral Directors Association’s newsletter.
Tribute Display: As donations (either individual or group donations) made in the name of one individual reach the $500 level, the honoree’s name will be prominently displayed at the offices of the NYS Tribute Foundation. This display is a beautiful and lasting remembrance of your loved one.
