Memorial and Commemorative Giving

Memorial Giving

Helping a loved one’s legacy live on is what happens when memorial donations are designated to Bread for Life. Honor the memory of your loved ones by making a donation to Bread for Life in their name or ask for donations to Bread for Life in their honor.  Your funeral director can facilitate this or call our office at 860-276-8389 for more information.

Sometimes a obituary will suggest that contributions be made in a loved one’s name in a charity of your choice. Bread for Life is grateful for any memorial donations.

All memorial donations will be recognized with a letter to the family letting them know that a donation has been made to Bread for Life in their loved one’s memory. This letter includes a sentiment of sympathy as well as recognition that their loved one’s memory will live on through a donation in their memory.  The donor’s name will be shared with the family in this acknowledgement letter but not the amount of the gift (unless donor requests that gift amount is shared).

Please include the following information so that a letter of sympathy and memorial donation acknowledgment can be mailed to the family of the loved one being remembered:

  1. name of the deceased
  2. the name and address of the person who should receive the letter indicating that a

memorial donation has been made for their loved one

In addition, memorial donations will be recognized through letter to the donor as memorial donations are tax-deductible.

Memorial donations may be made online (follow up with an email with information indicating memorial information above) or may be mailed to Bread for Life, PO Box 925, Southington, CT 06489.
