Memorial and Honor Tributes

Memorials: A gift to the Down Syndrome Association of Greater Charlotte in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to honor life and express sympathy, while sharing concern for an important cause.  Once a donation is made, DSAGC will send a special tribute card to a family member/friend explaining that a gift has been made in memory of his/her loved one.   

To make a memorial gift by credit card, please contact Kathryn Lariviere, Executive Director at 704-622-9740.  Or, you may send a check to the address above, along with the necessary information.   

Celebration and Tribute Gifts:  Looking for a special way to honor a loved one or celebrate a special occasion?  Celebration and tribute gifts are a perfect way for you to send birthday greetings, recognize weddings and births, or honor a personal hero in your life.  Your gift not only allows you to pay tribute to someone special, it funds programs that benefit individuals with Down syndrome in the Greater Charlotte area.  Once a donation is made, DSAGC sends a special tribute card explaining to the recipient that a gift has been made in his/her honor.   

If you choose to partner with DSAGC for a special occasion, a template can be prepared for you that highlights your gift. For example, friends of DSAGC may choose to donate money in lieu of purchasing wedding favors and a note is included at the seats of their guests.   

To coordinate a celebration and tribute gift, please contact Kathryn Lariviere, Executive Director 704-622-9740.
