Honorariums & Tribute Gifts

Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to honor or celebrate someone who has enriched your life or your community.  Your contribution will have a positive impact on the person you are honoring and they will appreciate a gift that has meaning.  Your giving will also be used to enrich lives within the community.

Opportunities for Tribute Giving

  • Retirement
  • Birthday, anniversary or wedding
  • Service and volunteer recognition — instead of a plaque
  • Nonprofits honoring board members — gift placed in endowed fund supporting the nonprofit
  • Holidays
  • Birth announcement
  • Other joyful or important occasions

Or, you may want to create something lasting – start a tribute fund honoring the special person through the Community Foundation! Please give us a call at 812-232-2234 to learn more.

The Community Foundation has received tributes and honorariums for the following organizations and individuals:
