Honor and Memorial Gifts

Honor and Memorial gifts help support Nazareth Child & Family Connection and our ministry to disadvantaged children and their families. A memorial gift is a way of honoring the memory of a departed loved one – a perfect way to express one’s sympathy and appreciation in times of sorrow. Investing in a young life through a memorial gift is an appropriate way to remember someone and provide a lasting tribute to that memory.

Honor gifts thank the living. This expression of thoughtfulness honors friends, family, and others on special occasions in their lives such as birthdays, holidays, anniversaries, promotions, and retirement. You may make an honor or memorial gift to Nazareth using your credit card by simply clicking the donate button.
