HONORARY & MEMORIAL GIFTS

Gifts to The Denver Foundation offer a special option if you are seeking to:

  • Honor a living person
  • Memorialize deceased persons
  • Commemorate anniversaries or other special events

Many people like to give to the Foundation's Community Endowment Fund to honor or memorialize someone. If you choose, we can notify the appropriate person about your gift. Please note that while we notify people of your thoughtfulness, we do not disclose the amount of your gift.

The Community Endowment Fund helps meet the changing needs of Metro Denver. Thousands of people have given to this fund since 1925. Earnings from this fund are distributed through our Community Grants Program.
