Honorary gifts celebrate lives while the honoree is still able to see the resulting work being done in the community. Birthdays, weddings, graduations, anniversaries, and retirements are part of a long list of special events and reasons for honoring someone with a gift that lasts a lifetime and beyond. These gifts can touch many people by providing a variety of community needs, from health care and food to education and youth engagement.
