Honorarium and Memorial Gifts
A contribution given in someone's honor is a wonderful way of commemorating a special day or event, or just giving thanks for someone special in your life. Giving a contribution in the name of someone who has passed away is a beautiful way to pay tribute to his or her love of birds, wildlife and nature.

When you give an honorarium or memorial gift, the person honored or the family of the person memorialized will receive an acknowledgement of your tax-deductible gift. Your token of appreciation recognizes that person's contribution to our conservation efforts and at the same time it broadens and continues their legacy by supporting our work.
