Gifts in Honor or in Memory

Commemorating a special person with a gift to the GCU Scholarship Foundation can be tremendously satisfying. It is a lasting tribute to a loved one, friend or colleague, and it provides valuable support to Grand Canyon University students.

 

A gift “In memory of” someone is the term used when the namesake is deceased. A gift “In honor of” someone is usually made while that person is living, often for celebratory occasions such as Christmas, graduation, promotion, birth of a child or grandchild, or retirement.

 

How to Donate
You may designate the placement of your gift and choose to donate to a program that is important to you or the gift’s namesake. You may even want to create a fund in someone’s name. It may be a one-time fund or one you and others can contribute to continually.
