Honor Gifts and Memorial Gifts

Honor Gifts and Memorial Gifts

Celebrating your special someone.

Cunningham children and youth benefit from the generosity of our many friends and supporters. These individuals often choose to memorialize or honor a special person by making a gift in their name to Cunningham Children’s Home. These gifts have a great affect on our vision at Cunningham to see every child thrive by providing a safe place to heal, learn, and grow.

For more information on how to honor or memorialize someone special, please contact Tim Manard by email or by phone at 217.337.9071 or make your gift online.

Honor Gifts

A special gift for someone you love and respect can’t always be found at a shopping center or mall. Sometimes a gift that not only touches the recipient but makes a difference in the lives of others is the perfect choice. Honor Gifts are a charitable contribution to Cunningham Children’s Home and can be made at any occasion: birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and/or holidays.

Directing Memorial Gifts to Cunningham Children’s Home

Families often ask how to encourage memorial gifts to Cunningham Children’s Home in honor of a loved one. The following language may be helpful in an obituary, either in print or online:

“In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in memory of (name of loved one) to Cunningham Children’s Home, 1301 N. Cunningham Avenue, Urbana, IL 61802 or online at www.cunninghamhome.org/ways-give/give-now.”
