Memorials Make a Thoughtful Gift

Most of us have a family member or a friend who is special to us the type of person you like to remember with a gift on special occasions.
Because you strongly value your relationship you might consider commemorating that special person through a memorial gift. While creating a thoughtful remembrance you can demonstrate appreciation for that person special to you and also help United Way of the Ozarks Endowment Forever Fund.
Most memorial gifts are received as cash contributions often by check. These gifts are convenient for the giver and will help build the Endowment for community needs. An acknowledgement card is sent immediately to the person/family letting them know of your gift without disclosing the amount given. What is of utmost importance is that a person special to you is remembered according to your wishes. That remembrance can bring many benefits to others who can lead a healthier life through the help of the United Way of the Ozarks.
