Clayton History Society

Memorial / Tribute Giving

Remember your loved ones with a unique gift!

There are many occasions when you want to say something special to a family member, friend or associate. Not only is a gift to the Clayton History Society a lovely way to express sympathy for the loss of a special person, it is also a wonderful way to commemorate happy occasions. You may even wish to make a contribution instead of giving a traditional holiday gift.

Whatever the occasion, we will mail an acknowledgement to the designee of your choice, to let them know that you've made a gift in their honor or their loved ones memory. (The amount of your gift will not be disclosed.)

The Clayton History Society relies on the support of individuals, families, and businesses to help preserve the history of our community and to conduct a myriad of educational activities. The Clayton History Society is a tax exempt charitable 501(c)(3) organization accepting memberships and donations to ensure its success. Your generosity is appreciated and all donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law.

In Memoriam - Memorial donations are a meaningful way to pay tribute and honor to the memory of a special relative, friend or colleague who has passed.
