Tribute gifts are a very thoughtful way to honour a family member, friend or colleague or to express sympathy for the loss of a loved one. At Laurier, we make it easy for you to do this, through a Memorial Gift, a Special Occasion Gift, a Lasting Tribute Gift or our Special Moments Gift Card Program.
REMEMBER through a Memorial Gift
Laurier is honoured to receive memorial gifts. Through a memorial gift, you can give a lasting tribute in memory of a loved one. Remembering someone special through a memorial gift is a thoughtful way to honour someone’s life and remember the relationship the individual had with Laurier. Your memorial gift will make a difference to students at Laurier.
MARK a special occasion through a Gift in Honour
Laurier is privileged to receive gifts in honour of family, alumni, students, staff, faculty, and friends. Through a gift in honour, you can give a tribute to congratulate a graduate or celebrate a retirement, commemorate an anniversary or birthday, or remember someone during the holiday season. Recognizing someone through gift in honour is a thoughtful way to celebrate the milestones in someone’s life, while making a difference to students at Laurier.
ESTABLISH a Lasting Tribute
Consider establishing a named scholarship, award or bursary as a lasting gift in memory or in honour of a loved one or in recognition of a retirement. Many scholarships, awards and bursaries have been created to support an area that is of interest to the donor or the person honoured. Family and friends can also contribute to your scholarship, award or bursary. To establish a lasting tribute, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
CELEBRATE with our Special Moments Gift Card Program
