In Memoriam

Rather than sending flowers in memory of a loved one, family and friends often suggest donations to support charitable work which the deceased would have been keen to help.

If the deceased was born or lived and worked in the county or the city – and has a particular connection or bond with Elgin-St. Thomas – In Memoriam gifts to the community foundation can be a wonderful way of celebrating and continuing that legacy. If you wish, funds can easily be earmarked to benefit an area¬†near and dear to the person’s heart. Just let us know the area of greatest significance.

If a family wishes to make a large gift in memory of a loved one, it may be more suitable to create a permanent Named Fund – please call the Foundation at 519-637-8230 if this is something you would like to consider.
