Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one who has benefited from Step Up For Students, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor him/her, or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of the children we serve.

An Example of How It Works

Couple Smiling When a woman's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising a charity like Step Up for its tireless efforts to better his community.

So she decided to make a gift to the charity in her father's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her father's legacy live on at the charity thanks to the gift, but she also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
