Giving in Memory or in Honour and Celebration Gifts
Celebrate the important people and significant moments in your life by making a Tribute gift in the name of a family member, friend, or colleague. It is an endearing and meaningful way to recognize or to let other know you care about someone extraordinary and create a lasting legacy in their honour.
There are two kinds of Tributes you can make. The first is “In Memory” of a family member, friend or colleague who has passed away. When you make an In Memoriam gift, you are commemorating the life of a loved one or someone special and this tell others how much this person meant to you.
The second type of Tribute is made “In Honour” of a person or an organization as a way of saying thanks. For example, many people have given gifts “In Honour” of our volunteers, or camp counsellors who have helped the children. In Honour gifts are also be made in celebration of a birth, birthday, anniversary, marriage or a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.
Remember a loved one by making a donation in his or her memory to the BC Lions Society for Children with Disabilities and Easter Seals BC/Yukon which will help children gain abilities. In Memoriam gifts are special for both the giver and the next of kin. We want to help make your gift giving experience as meaningful as possible. An inscribed condolence card will be sent in your name to the bereaved and an official receipt for income tax purposes will be mailed to you or if you donate online you will receive your receipt right away. The amount of your gift is kept strictly confidential.
