A donation can be made to the SHARE Foundation in memory of a loved one. The SHARE Foundation will pay tribute to your loved one by including his or her name in the Good News publication. The Good News is distributed once a month to over 11,000 households around the country. A section of the Good News each month is dedicated to people whose families have chosen to remember them in this way. When donations are made in someone’s memory, a letter of acknowledgement is sent to his or her family recognizing the gift was made, but not including the amount.
Donations can also be made in celebration of a living relative or friend. Your special message will appear in the living memorials sections of the SHARE Foundation’s Good News newsletter. A living memorial is a great way to recognize a holiday, birthday, or anniversary while supporting the SHARE Foundation.
At SHARE Foundation, we are so very grateful for all memorial donations, large and small, but our policy is that thank you letters and acknowledgement cards are not sent for memorials received that are less than $10.00 per name. These will be printed in the Good News newsletter, but no cards or letters will be sent. Due to the increasing cost of paper, postage, and time related to sending cards and letters, it is not good stewardship to spend donations you have entrusted to us to fill mailboxes with mail.
Memorial donations of $10.00 or more per name will continue to be handled with a thank you letter, acknowledgement to the family, and a listing in the newsletter. If you do not require a thank you letter, please mark the envelope so that we can code your account and save the cost of a letter, thus allowing us to use the funds for our programs for other-abled people. Thank you for your understanding!
