If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Morehouse College, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
An Example of How It Works
When Kevin's father passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. Kevin remembered that during his father's lifetime he was always praising Morehouse for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Kevin decided to make a gift to Morehouse in his father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his father's legacy live on at Morehouse thanks to the gift and a commemorative plaque, but Kevin also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
