Memorial or Honor Gifts

Gifts in memory or honor of someone will benefit NAFSA far into the future, and it will leave a lasting legacy of the honoree. These gifts may be made by an individual donor or by a group of people the honored individual inspired.

Gifts in Memory

You can remember someone special by giving a gift in their memory to NAFSA. This is a valuable and positive way to celebrate the life of a friend, colleague, or loved one, while helping NAFSA make a difference for the future of international education.

Gifts in Honor

A meaningful way to acknowledge those people who have made a difference in your life is with a gift in their honor to NAFSA. It's a great idea for special occasions, such as birthdays or anniversaries, or just as a way to thanks.


Let NAFSA know who you'd like to remember or honor on the Donation Form and, unless you'd like to remain anonymous, it will be acknowledged on the NAFSA website along with your name.

NAFSA will send a card acknowledging your thoughtful donation to the person of your choice recognizing your donation. Please provide us with the name and address of the person or persons to whom a memorial letter should be sent on your behalf. Please note that the letter will identify you as the donor unless you specify that you would prefer to make your memorial contribution anonymously.

Thank you for remembering and honoring your loved ones by giving to NAFSA.
