Other Ways to Give

Susie-19Memorial or Honorarium Gifts

Many people like to give gifts to WACF in memory or honor of a child, a friend or loved one.  Some make a gift in honor of a special event like a birthday or anniversary.  The reasons to give are limited by your imagination.  When a gift is given in this way we will send the honoree or the honoree’s family a letter letting them know of the gift.
