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.
