Honorary or Memorial Gifts

Honorary gifts recognize special individuals, anniversaries or events. A contribution in memory or in honor of a special person in your life is a wonderful way to signify their importance and at the same time, support the quality education offered at Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College. Honorary or memorial gifts can be unrestricted or designated for a particular use. Named scholarships can be established through memorial/honor gifts totaling $1,500 and endowed gifts totaling $50,000. Your charitable contribution gives you the opportunity to recognize your loved one and helps the Foundation fulfill its mission.

Memorial Gifts are a wonderful way to remember a loved one. Donors receive a formal acknowledgement and a family member of the the person being memorialized is notified of the news of donors making memorial gifts.

For acknowledgement purposes, when making a memorial gift, simply include a note with the following information:

Name of the deceased
Name and address of the surviving family member to whom notice of this gift should be sent.
Your name, address and phone number.

Honorary Gifts are a wonderful way to celebrate life's many milestones - the birth of a child, a birthday, anniversary, marriage, or graduation. Donors of honorary gifts are formally acknowledged and honorees also are notified.

Named Endowment Gifts will enable the College to ensure that it will have the resources to achieve its mission for generations to come. Endowment funds are invested to maximize total return rather than annual cash earnings. These funds, which are named after an honoree, are established at $50,000. However, there are several already established endowments that donors can add to or invest in at any time that do not require any minimum gift level.
