Memorial and Honorary Gifts

A memorial gift can help perpetuate the values and ideals that defined a loved one’s life. Honorary gifts commemorate a significant event or an exceptional person who is still living. Families of those so honored will be notified of your gift; the amount, however, remains private.

If you are interested in making a memorial or honorary gift, please contact our Development Director, Jesse Antin, at 510•457•1153 or .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
