Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Barnard College, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will extend the legacy of your loved one and will make a difference.

An Example of How It Works

Woman smiling When Joanna's mother passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. She remembered that during her lifetime her mother was always praising Barnard for its tireless efforts to better the community.

Joanna decided to make a gift to Barnard in her mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will her mother's legacy live on at Barnard thanks to the gift, but Joanna also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
