Celebration or Memorial Gifts

Making a gift that helps others is a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone or remember an important person in your life. Celebrating events such as graduations, weddings, promotions, retirements takes on a new meaning when you help to improve the lives of children, women and men in the Baltimore region. Likewise, remembering those who have touched your life in a special way takes on greater meaning when your generosity helps those in need. Each gift is acknowledged by a card sent to the honored person or family of the deceased person in whose name the gift is being made. The notification does not include the amount of the gift. However, as a donor, you will receive a separate acknowledgement for your own records. To make a celebration or memorial gift, you may contact Meghan Montone, Director of Advancement, at (410) 467-4246.
