funeral homes in Gainesville, FL

Memorial Donations

When someone loses a loved one, those around them will want to reach out and show the family their sympathies. You can always talk to funeral homes in Gainesville, FL and get advice, but making a memorial donation is always a nice way to go. You can send the family a card and let them know what kind of a memorial donation you did for that person. Here are some places you might consider:

Local Non-Profits

If there are local charities in the area, you might want to support them in honor of the person who passed on. You might know that the person who died was a part of a certain charity or donated to them. Perhaps they even volunteered there. Making a donation to that place is going to be meaningful to them and it’s a nice gesture to show them you care.

National Charities

Perhaps the person who passed on was ill from a certain disease, or supported a national charity. There are plenty of national non-profits that would be nice to donate money to as well. You can give money to support research or do something else good in that person’s name. Let the family know what you sent and they will appreciate that a lot.

Schools From Their Past

If your loved one was proud of the high school or college from which they graduated, you could donate funds to that school. They might use it to upgrade something, put certain books in the library, or do something else.

Scholarship Options

If your loved one was a part of something special, you might want to offer a scholarship to that area to help someone else. If they adored dance, for example, offer a dance scholarship to a local academy. If they were musicians, you can offer free instruments to a local school that needs some for students. There are plenty of options out there. You can find something suitable or talk to the family for further ideas.

Businesses Doing Good

Some companies do a lot for their employees and perhaps you would like to offer funds to those companies to support those benefits. You might, for example, want to give money to a company your loved one worked for so the staff can go out to eat in their honor or place a plaque on the wall for them.
