Honoring one life by helping another

"Hope is being able to see that there is light despite all of the darkness.
– Archbishop Desmond Tutu

Where there are children, there is hope. Through a memorial gift to Elmcrest, you honor the life of someone you hold dear by fostering hope among children who need it most. With your Elmcrest Memorial Gift

  • The survivors you designate will receive a tasteful card noting your gift to Elmcrest along with your message of sympathy.
  • You will get an acknowledgement of your tax-deductible gift and a note of thanks from from our executive director.
  • Elmcrest will put your gift to work helping children who are facing major life challenges.
