Memorial or Honorary Funds

Memorial and honorary gifts can reflect the interests and values of your loved one, making it a true extension of that person’s life and accomplishments.


Honor a special person through a memorial or honorary fund. This type of gift creates a personal tribute and helps leave a legacy at the University. The Foundation will send an acknowledgement to the honoree or family of the deceased to notify them of your thoughtful gift.


A memorial or honorary fund may be established as an endowment or as a current fund. Endowed memorial and endowed honorary funds must comply with established endowment minimums.
