Memorials and Tributes Should Last Forever

Gifts to the Community Foundation do just that

Book of Memorials and Tributes

When a loved one dies, you are faced with a multitude of decisions during a time of painful loss. We can help to create a fitting memorial, a tribute that will recognize the difference that this special person made in the lives of those around him or her.

You may be content to ask that contributions in lieu of flowers be made to "the charity of one's choice." Or, you may want to create something lasting - a memorial or tribute with the Community Foundation of Howard County.

A memorial fund can be set up while making funeral arrangements and the donor can decide later how gifts should be used to best honor their loved one and celebrate the way he or she lived.

  • Contributions will be added to the fund of your choice and endowed as a lasting memorial/tribute benefiting our community forever;
  • Your tax-deductible gift will be acknowledged to the family or the honoree;
  • Memorial and tribute gifts will be listed in our publications and will be added to the Community Foundation's Book of Memory.

The Community Foundation of Howard County, Inc. is grateful for contributions made in memory of friends and loved ones who have passed away. Remembrances contributed to funds within the Community Foundation are a fitting tribute to those who have enriched our lives and our community. These are truly gifts that keep on giving.
