How it works:

MEMORIALS

  • The bookplate is incribed with the name of the person memorialized. If the donor wishes, their name can also be included on the bookplate.
  • An acknowledgement is sent to both the donor and the family of the person memorialized.
  • The donor's address is placed in the notice sent to the family so they may acknowledge it.
  • Forms for making a Memorial gift are available here.
