Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

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

John and his mother smiling He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising Scripps College for the beautiful residence halls and grounds, her close relationships with the faculty, and the lifelong friendships she made there.

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