Memorial Gifts can be made in the name of a person lost to suicide. Family and friends often find comfort in remembering loved ones with a donation in their memory. The generosity of survivors provides support for our work, while offering a sense of comfort that the legacy of their loved one will help to prevent this tragedy from happening to others.

Memorial Gifts are also made in honor of a loved one affected by sexual violence, a victim of homicide, or in honor of a friend/family member who volunteered with the Crisis Center. We are happy to send a notice to an individual or to an individual’s family with the information about the donation made in their honor.
