Memorial and Honor Gifts

Memorial and honor gifts are meaningful ways to pay tribute to someone or commemorate a special occasion while also supporting the valuable work of The Strong. Many individuals choose to make tax-deductible gifts to honor family or friends on birthdays, anniversaries, and other occasions, or to memorialize a life well lived. 

Acknowledgements of memorial and honor gifts are conveyed without revealing the amount of the contribution. The individual being honored or the family of the person being remembered receives a complete list of all donors who have made tribute gifts.

To make a memorial or honor gift, please contact Audrey Blocchi, institutional advancement services coordinator, at 585-410-6346 or

Gifts may also be made by check, payable to The Strong. Please indicate the honoree’s name and the contact information so that the appropriate individuals may be notified of your gift. Please mail memorial or honor gifts to:
