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.
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.
Memorial Gifts are a charitable contribution to Cunningham Children’s Home in the name of a lost friend or loved one.
