Commemorative Gifts

Commemorative gifts are a wonderful way to honor the memory of a loved one or to celebrate a birthday, anniversary or achievement with a truly meaningful gift.  When you make a commemorative gift, please give us the name and address of the person you wish to honor or the family of the deceased so we may notify them of your gift (the gift amount is not revealed).  You may designate your commemorative gift to a particular project or program just like any other gift to Franciscan Workers.
