Memorials and tribute gifts
Honor someone special with a future gift in their name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Environmental Defense Fund, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and help protect our planet for generations.
An example of a lasting tribute
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that aligned with his passion for the environment. She remembered that during his lifetime he was a regular supporter of environmental causes.
Sarah decided to make a gift to EDF in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's vision for the future live on through EDF's efforts, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
