Tribute or Honorary Gift
Tribute or Honorary Gift
Pay tribute to friends and family, honor very special occasion, or honor the memory of a loved one while providing the needed support to eliminate hunger in the Antelope Valley.
Use the occasion of a birthday, anniversary, or marriage to share your compassion for the hungry in our valley. Celebrate Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Weddings or Graduations with a contribution to honor those individuals we cherish in our lives. There are so many occasions and opportunities to make a Tribute Gift to Grace Resource Center.
The passing of a loved one is always difficult. Consider honoring his or her memory through a memorial gift to Grace Resource Center.
Every Memorial or Tribute gift to Grace Resource Center is tax deductible, and helps us provide desperately needed food to the most vulnerable members of our community: children, families, and seniors. Each gift is acknowledged promptly both to the donor and to the designee of the gift, without any mention of the size of the gift.
