Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Contributions to Jennings are a wonderful and appropriate way to honor past and current members of the Jennings community – residents, tenants, family members, and even staff members.  Memorial and Tribute Gifts are applied to the Jennings Annual Fund, but donors may also make larger gifts to create endowed funds to support specific projects, programs and facilities on our campus.

You can pay tribute to the memory of a loved one or celebrate the accomplishments, birthday or anniversary of a friend or family member while also helping older adults. Your gift is a rewarding way to remember or honor someone while supporting mission of Jennings to care for older adults, with special concern for those with limited means.


We list memorials and honorariums in our quarterly “Hallmarks” newsletter, as well as at the end of the year in our annual report. We will also personally acknowledge your gift, which is tax deductible. If you would like to make a donation in honor of a family member or friend, we will send a card to that person or family member to acknowledge your thoughtful gift. If a gift is made in memory of an individual, we would be happy to send acknowledgment to a family member or other loved one.
