Memorials and Tribute Gifts
Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who cares about Baltimore, establishing a memorial fund in their honor at BCF is a meaningful way to honor them. Your gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in Baltimore forever.
An Example of How It Works
When Sarah's father passed away, she knew she wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for him. She remembered that during his lifetime he was always praising BCF for its tireless efforts to better his community.
Sarah decided to in her father's name using appreciated securities. She asked that others join her by making gifts to the fund in lieu of flowers and put this request in the obituary. Not only will her father's legacy live on at BCF thanks to the named fund, but Sarah also received a federal income tax charitable deduction (because she itemizes her taxes) and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
