Tribute Funds List

Making a tribute donation is a thoughtful way to commemorate any occasion, accomplishment or milestone in lives of people we care about. They are a way to say "mazel tov," "thank you," or "happy birthday." Many of our members have chosen tribute donations to celebrate bar/bat mitzvahs, the birth of children or grandchildren, anniversaries or during a time of loss to memorialize a loved one.

Make a Tribute Donation or if you would like to create a new named fund, please contact Mark R. Jacobson, Executive Director, at 404.873.1731. When you make a tribute, a personalized card is sent (omitting the gift amount) acknowledging your gift to the individual or family you designate.
