Memorial and Honoring Gifts

These generous donors have chosen to honor a loved one’s memory with a gift in their name. It’s a wonderful way to say how much you cherish them and your shared interest in choice at life’s end. We will notify the person you honored, or the family of the person you memorialized, with the good news about your contribution to Compassion & Choices in their name. *Gifts made between July 7 2014 – September 30, 2015
