Memorial & Honorary Gifts
Gifts in Honor
Celebrate a birthday, anniversary, holiday, or other special occasion with a gift to the Flynn honoring your friend, family member, or co-worker. They will receive a personal letter from the Flynn telling them that you have made a thoughtful gift in their name. Contact Paula Roberts at 802-652-4507 or probertsREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org to make an honorary gift.
Have you thought about the Flynn as an organization to benefit from gifts in memory of a loved one – family, friend, or co-worker? Yourself? Gifts in memory are made to recognize someone dear to the donor who has passed away and to celebrate his or her life. Special memories are created at the Flynn and there could be no better way to honor a loved one’s (or your) special memories than to suggest a memorial or tribute gift.
Letting Your Family Know
When a family suffers a loss, there are countless emotional decisions to make. To ensure your final wishes are known, it is advisable to share with your loved ones that you would appreciate memorial gifts to the Flynn in your honor. If your wishes are documented in a safe place, that will make decisions even easier for your loved ones.
Notice of Memorial or Tribute Gift
Loved ones may prefer to ask for memorial gifts through the published obituary. The notice might read, “In lieu of flowers, the family requests contributions be made in memory of (name of person) to the Flynn Center, 153 Main Street, Burlington VT 05401”. Alternatively, relatives and friends can be notified at the service or the information can be printed on a card of remembrance.
When memorial gifts are made to the Flynn the donor will be thanked and the family of the loved one will be notified of the gift and any accompanying message. For additional information and to ensure proper notification and dedication of memorial gifts, please contact Paula Roberts at 802-652-4507 or probertsREMOVETHISBEFORESENDING@flynncenter.org.
