Memorial Giving

Your loved one’s legacy will live on and serve others. When someone you love dies, you might worry that they’ll be forgotten.

The memorial giving process is simple.

You can mail a check (P.O. Box 88828, Milwaukee, WI 53288-0828) or make a credit card donation online (click HERE).

Once your donation is received, you will receive an acknowledgement in the mail or by email, whatever you prefer; this acknowledgement will serve as documentation for your taxes.

A notification letter will be mailed to the designated family member(s) of the person you’re memorializing indicating your name and mailing address and the date you made your gift.

Your generosity will be acknowledged in our quarterly Grief Resource Center newsletter and annual report.

Annually, you’ll receive a letter containing an overview of all of your donations to the organization during the last calendar year. This may also be used for your tax purposes.
