Honorary/Memorial Gifts


Recognizing Someone Special

 Recognizing Someone SpecialTribute gifts are a thoughtful way to celebrate a birthday, wedding, new baby, graduation or any special occasion. They also serve as a special expression of sympathy by honoring the memory of someone you cherish. Tributes or memorial gifts are a thoughtful way to recognize a person's life and accomplishments. Your gift can support any area of MU in memory or honor of someone you admire, respect, or want to remember in a meaningful way, such as an alumnus, professor, mentor, student,       co-worker, family or friend. 

Tribute gifts are a wonderful way to honor someone by contributing to an organization that means a lot to them. Your honorary or memorial gift to Mansfield University through the Foundation will be acknowledged with a card (if requested) notifying the honoree or next of kin. MU Foundation will administer the gift as you direct. The amount of the gift is kept confidential and the tax deduction is yours.

Honorary or Memorial Gifts can be made online; by contacting the Mansfield University Foundation at 570.662.4852 or by mail.

“My house only has so much room and I really have all the material things I need. When I received the card from the foundation letting me know that my children made a birthday gift in my honor to the Mansfield University Foundation I was really touched. My family knew how much my years at Mansfield meant to me. And, it was much better than getting another red tie.” -Dennis Miller '71
