Honorary and Memorial Gifts

Memorial and Honorary Gifts

A memorial or tribute gift is a thoughtful way to remember a loved one, commemorate a special occasion or honor a person’s life and accomplishments. Your gift to UMD made in honor or memory of this special person extends the impact of their legacy.

Please mention the name of the person you are honoring with your gift. If you would like UMD to notify the honoree or a family member, please also indicate the name and address of the individual to be notified. 

Create a Living Memorial

Planting a memorial tree is a meaningful way to honor someone or something, commemorate an event, or mark a milestone.  Every tree planted at UMD will become a living legacy, a gift that will live on in a unique and unending way. The $1,000 donation includes installation and a permanent engraved plaque. You can personalize the plaque with a maximum of 5 lines and 35 characters per line. 

If you are interested in gifting a memorial or honorary tree or have questions, please contact the UMD Development Office at (866) 726-7989 or email at [email protected].
