Honors & Memorials

You can honor or remember loved ones, celebrate family milestones, and recognize important accomplishments with your contributions to Friedman Place. Honor, memorial, and tribute gifts multiply the good you do: you feel the satisfaction of giving, you communicate your esteem or joy, and you bring happiness to people who are blind or visually impaired. Friedman Place will send a lovely card announcing your gift and its purpose to whomever you designate. We recommend a minimum contribution of $25 for honors, memorials, and tributes.

Honor, memorial, or tribute gifts are appropriate:

  • At times of celebration—births, birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, promotions, graduations, personal achievements, recovery from illness, a new house, a new job, a grand opening
  • At times of remembrance—funerals (in lieu of flowers), unveilings, memorials
  • To celebrate religious and cultural occasions—Bat/Bar Mitzvahs, Confirmations, Rosh Hashanah, Chanukah, Christmas, Baptism, etc.
  • On secular commemorative holidays—Memorial Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, Mother's Day, Father's Day, Grandparents' Day, Valentine's Day, Secretary's Day, Boss's Day, etc.
