Tributes and Special Gifts

Your gift can be made in honor or memory of someone special in your life. Tributes and special gifts can serve to acknowledge a meaningful event, such as a birthday or graduation, or to send a special message to a loved on a meaningful occasion, such as Mother’s Day. We will send a letter sharing news of your gift to your designated recipient. When making your gift, specify that you intend for it to be a tribute gift. If you have any questions, please contact Amanda Ceravolo in our Development Office at 574-233-9491 ext: 324

Matching Gifts

Many employers offer matching gift programs through which the company will make a separate gift that is equal or even doubles the amount of your gift. Contact your Human Resources Department to learn more about their matching gift program. If available, they will provide you with the necessary forms to be completed and submitted along with your gift. One-time gifts, gifts of securities, and tributes and special gifts are all eligible for matching funds from employers.
