Honoring a Loved One with Memorial Giving

6Alyssa-John- Imi.JPG

hon·or means regard with great respect; great esteem.

Understanding Works invites you to make a donation in honor of a loved one. Giving to a special charity is one of the top ten ways to honor someone's life. This can be done on a special occasion like a birthday, anniversary, graduation, bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah. Any occasion at all.

When you make a memorial gift in honor of someone who has touched your life, your tax-deductible donation will add to the celebration of life of your loved one by helping support the preservation of stories that are teaching history and compassion to young readers. 

A personalized gift fund can be created in memory of someone who has passed away. It's a very meaningful way to celebrate the life of someone you've lost. 


Contact Sue Rector either by email or by telephone at 563-343-7985 to discuss honoring a loved one or a memorial.
