If your loved one embodied ALA’s mission of Service Not Self, a gift to the ALA or the ALA Foundation is a great way to honor them in their passing. Flowers can be beautiful, but a gift to their favorite organization will make a difference in the lives of their heroes — now that’s a beautiful tribute.
“The American Legion Auxiliary is so ingrained in our family,” said Past National President Mary Davis, “so that’s the first thing that came to my mind [when her mother passed] and that’s the only thing that came to my mind. It’s a way that mom could continue giving.”
When you make a donation in memory of someone, the person or family you are honoring can receive an acknowledgment informing them of your gift without disclosing the amount. Tribute and memorial gifts in any amount can be made to celebrate achievements or remember ones who have passed away.
