Memorial and Honorary Giving Programs

The Memorial and Honorary Giving Program offers you a meaningful way to extend condolences or congratulations to friends and family members and help The Skills Foundation at the same time. This program is easy and convenient to use.

What Is a Memorial Gift?

A Memorial gift allows you to pay tribute to a departed loved one by making a gift in their memory to The Skills Foundation. Memorial contributions are often made in lieu of flowers or sympathy cards.

What Is an Honorary Gift?

An Honorary gift allows you to commemorate your living friends and relatives on special occasions by making a gift in their name to The Skills Foundation. Honorary contributions can be made to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, retirement, holiday, or any other special occasion.

How Is My Contribution Acknowledged?

An acknowledgment will be sent to whomever you wish to be notified of your gift, such as family or friends of the deceased or the person being honored. The gift amount will not be disclosed in this acknowledgment. A thank-you note will be sent to you, acknowledging your gift and the amount.

Who Does My Contribution Help?

Your gift will support Skills programs for children, adults, and seniors with disabilities. Throughout Pennsylvania, Skills provides residential programs and support services for people with developmental disabilities and/or mental illness, many with multiple physical disabilities, medical complications, and behavior program needs.

Your contribution helps Skills continue to provide high-quality programs and facilities to help individuals with disabilities live their lives with purpose and dignity, and to provide opportunities and choices for Skills clients to grow and function at their full potential as independently as possible.
