Making a donation in someone's name is a truly powerful gift. You are not only recognizing that someone has touched your life in a special way, but you are memorializing them in the 记忆之书, which is on permanent display at Merrick Foundation. Memorial gifts can be directed to a specific fund or be placed in the General Endowment Fund. The General Endowment Fund is a permanent fund that is used to fund various projects for nonprofits and groups across Merrick County.
In addition to being memorialized in the 记忆之书, individuals are also honored in our annual report which is mailed to donors and Merrick County residents each year. 最后, 当我们 receive a gift in memory of someone, we will also notify the family that a donation was made in their loved one's name.
