Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Goodwill-Easter Seals Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. 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

Woman smiling 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 Goodwill-Easter Seals for its tireless efforts to better the community.

John decided to make a gift to Goodwill-Easter Seals in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at Goodwill-Easter Seals thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
