Memorials and Tribute Gifts
Honor Someone With a Future Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Women's Foundation of Minnesota, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of women and girls across our state.
An Example of How It Works
When Robert's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she praised the Women's Foundation for its investment in creating a world of equal opportunity for women and girls in Minnesota. Robert decided to make a gift to WFMN in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at the Women's Foundation thanks to the gift, but Robert also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because he itemizes his taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
