Memorials: Remembering Someone Special

The Community Foundation for Northeast Florida is honored to accept donations in memory of a cherished family member or friend. In many cases, the deceased or his/her family have established a fund to specifically support a particular work or organization that was particularly meaningful to the deceased. Below is a selection of the most recently established memorial funds that you may choose, or you may search for another fund or interest area by using the search tool.

You can make any donation in memory or honor of someone by noting such in the Comments section of the donation form for any fund you choose. If you’d like us to acknowledge your donation to someone other than the fundholder, please provide the contact information for the recipient in the comment box as well.

Cole Kelley 

Cole Hunter Kelley was called home on Dec. 4, 2019 at the young age of 14.  His love for life, others and most importantly Jesus is what he will forever be remembered for by those he encountered here on earth.  He had a dynamic smile that would light up any room, a hug that reached your heart, and a gentleness that brought comfort to others much like holding your grandmother’s hand.  He was quick to notice those in need and brave enough to stand apart from the crowd when the crowd wasn’t representing kindness and love.  But what many didn’t realize was, this wasn’t Cole, this was Jesus working through Cole.  Cole believed with his whole heart that Jesus died on the cross to save him from his sins, and he wanted others to know that Jesus died for them too! 

 

In remembrance of Cole Kelley a scholarship has been established for a graduating senior at Ponte Vedra High School.
