Gifts in Memory

A memorial gift is a meaningful way to honor someone special who has passed away while supporting The Delaplaine Arts Center’s mission. When we receive a memorial gift, a letter and receipt is sent to the donor to acknowledge the contribution. A note of the gift also is sent to any person that the donor indicates should receive one (or, in the case of formally arranged memorials, the designated family member). We do not reveal gift amounts.

Gifts in Honor

Memorial gifts also are a wonderful way to acknowledge the important people in your life or celebrate their important milestones such as birthdays, anniversaries, and holidays. When we receive a memorial gift, a letter and receipt is sent to the donor to acknowledge the contribution. A note of the gift also is sent to the individual being honored. We do not reveal gift amounts.

All donors are recognized in the quarterly Delaplaine Arts magazine, in the Annual Report, and on the Donor Board in our front foyer. All donors of $100 and above are invited to our annual Donor Party.
