Tribute Gifts

In lieu of traditional favors, thank your friends and family for sharing your special occasion with a gift to The Family Institute at Northwestern University.

For example, tribute gifts honor individuals celebrating:

  • Birthdays
  • Graduations
  • Weddings
  • Anniversaries
  • Birth of a child
  • Speedy recovery
  • Bar and Bat mitzvahs
  • Holidays
  • Other special occasions or accomplishments

We also invite you to make your contribution in memory of a loved one. Memorial gifts are a lasting remembrance of a special person you wish to honor.

The Family Institute will acknowledge your tribute or memorial gift by sending an appropriate card to the family or friend in whose name the gift was made. The amount of your gift will not be mentioned, and a separate receipt will be sent to you.

For more information, please call the Institutional Advancement office at 312-609-5300.
