Memorials and Tribute Gifts
Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Arthritis Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while helping us provide life-changing information, advocacy, science and community connections to individuals with arthritis. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and will make a difference.
An Example of How It Works
When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising the Arthritis Foundation for its tireless efforts to better the community.
John decided to make a gift to the Arthritis Foundation in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at the Arthritis Foundation thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
