Paying Tribute

An honorary or memorial gift is a meaningful way to convey sympathy for the bereaved, memorialize a loved one, commemorate a special occasion, or honor someone with your gift to the University of Richmond. Making an honorary or memorial gift is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person's life and accomplishments. When you make an honorary or memorial gift, Donor Relations will (if requested) notify the honoree or next of kin, and will administer the gift as you direct.
