Tributary Gifts

Honor someone you love with a tributary gift

In Honor of Gifts

Gifts to the College at Wise may be made in honor of a person or a special event in the life of a loved one. Many choose to honor a particular faculty member, classmate, their parents, or friends — anyone who has inspired them, challenged them, and helped them to grow. Others honor birthdays, anniversaries, and many other special occasions. Just be sure to indicate the full name of the person you wish to honor and the College will notify them of your kindness. Honorary gifts are listed below for the current fiscal year, July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023.

In Memory of Gifts

Gifts to the College may also be made in memory of a person who has affected the life of the donor or at the passing of a family, friend, or colleague. Memorial gifts are a beautiful and loving way to pay special tribute to a loved one. Please indicate the full name of the person and who you would like us to let know of your gift. Memorial gifts are listed below for the current fiscal year, July 1, 2022 – June 30, 2023.
