Honor friends, colleagues, or family in a meaningful way with a tribute or memorial gift.Make a Gift
A tribute gift is a meaningful way to memorialize a loved one or to honor the impact that a special person has had on your life. We welcome gifts to honor and memorialize beloved pets as well.
The easiest way to make tribute gifts — gifts in memory or in honor of someone — is online at supportuw.org/giveto/tribute.
Once you have selected where you want to direct your gift, you will have the option to check a box that indicates, “Dedicate my gift in honor or memory of a person or pet.” You will also have the option to request that we notify a specific individual of your gift with a mailed acknowledgment.
Resources for Family Members
