Memorial & Honorary Gifts

Celebrate someone special in your life with a memorial or honorary by supporting the mission of Catholic Charities and our programs to end poverty in the Washington-metropolitan area.

We are grateful that you wish to give to us in honor or in memory of a loved one.

Honorary Gifts are special way to acknowledge the importance people in your life and are often given on special occasions, such as a birthday, graduation or anniversary.  They are also appropriate for holidays such as Christmas, Mother's Day and Father's Day.  Honorary gifts are often given to show appreciation for someone's kindness or to recognize their impact on your life.

In Memory Gifts are a special way to memorialize someone special who has passed away.

When a Memorial or Honor gift is received by Catholic Charities, a letter is sent to the donor to acknowledge the gift, as well as to any person whom the donor indicates should receive an acknowledgement.  This may include the family of the deceased or the person being honored (Note: the amount of the gift is not revealed.)
