One of the most precious and long-lasting ways to commemorate the life of your loved one is by making an Honorary Gift in their name or an In Memoriam Gift for someone who has passed away. Your thoughtful Honorary Gifts and In Memoriam gifts make it possible for the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation (LIAF) to continue funding our most vital projects and programs.
Honorary Gifts are a special way to acknowledge the importance of those in your life. In most instances, Honorary Gifts are given on special occasions, such as an anniversary, graduation, or a birthday. Many generous donors also choose to give Honorary Gifts for Mother's Day, Christmas, and Father's Day.
Regardless of the occasion or inspiration for the donation, Honorary Gifts are a heartfelt way of demonstrating how much someone means to you. These gifts are one of the sincerest ways of showing appreciation for someone's kindness or to recognize the significant impact they've had on your life.
You can make an Honorary Gift to LIAF online or in person. After you make the gift we can notify the honoree (if you would like). In the notification, we can either disclose the monetary amount or not disclose the monetary amount based on your preferences. In either case, we will administer the Honorary Gift as you have described.

In Memoriam Gifts or In Memory Gifts are a special way to memorialize a friend or loved one who is no longer with us. This option is a heartfelt way to celebrate your loved one's life and ensure their memory lives on to help others.
You can make your In Memoriam Gift online or in person. Once LIAF receives the gift, we will send a letter to you acknowledging the gift. We can also send a letter to anyone, such as next of kin, you indicate should receive acknowledgement. You can choose whether you would like us to disclose the monetary amount or not. However, we will administer the Memorial Gift as you describe.

As a 501(3)(c) nonprofit organization, all monetary gifts to the Long Island Alzheimer's Foundation are tax deductible. Even if your Honorary Gift or In Memoriam Gift is to a specific event or program, it's still tax deductible. We will provide proof of the donation that can be used for tax filings.
At LIAF, we are committed to making a difference in the lives of caregivers and those with Alzheimer's disease — one person, one family, one community at a time. We provide comprehensive services specific to each of three stages of Alzheimer's disease. We also offer in-home respite care programs, transportation services, Caregiver Support Groups, and a host of events and additional service designed to enrich lives of those living with Alzheimer's and their caregivers.
Our message is simple: we are here for you every step of the way. And your generous donations, Honorary Gifts, and In Memoriam gifts make our mission of helping families with Alzheimer's a reality.
