Tribute or Memorial Giving
Remember to honor the life of a loved one or friend with a gift to Walter Lawson Children's Home. Memorial gifts are an appropriate and meaningful way to celebrate the life of the deceased.

Recipients of Tribute Gifts will be moved by the thoughtfulness of the gift. Opportunities for Tribute Gifts include holidays, birthdays, graduation, promotions, anniversaries or just because you care. We will send a lovely note card to the family or individual you indicate letting them know of your gift without revealing the amount.
