Tributes, Memorials, & Book Dedications
Recognize a Loved One or Friend
Honor and Memorial Donations
A tribute can be given to the Institute to honor someone special or in remembrance of a deceased family member or friend. Tributes can also be given to recognize a significant event in a person's life or in lieu of a gift for a birthday or special event. The Institute will send a personalized card notifying the honoree or surviving family member of your thoughtful gift.
A book dedication is appropriate for a variety of occasions and always holds special meaning for the recipient. These gifts allow you to honor someone while also helping to build the collection of books in the Institute's libraries. Each book dedicated to someone includes a special bookplate recognizing the honoree, and the Institute will send a personalized card to the person you designate.
Use our online donation form to give a tribute or memorial or to dedicate a book in someone's honor. Indicate in the "comments" section of the form the person for whom the gift is being given in honor or memory.
