If you have a loved one who cares deeply about releasing children from poverty, establishing a Memorial or Tribute Gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or to celebrate a special occasion while supporting Compassion. Your Memorial or Tribute Gift will be a lasting honor to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of children in need.
Memorial Gifts can be allocated to any fund at Compassion. You can do this individually or as a group.
All checks should be made out to Compassion International. In the memo or note portion of the check, each donor should write “In memory of” and add the name of your loved one so we’ll know where the funds go. In lieu of flowers, you can include this information and address in the obituary. Send all checks to:
Attn: Gift Planning Department
12290 Voyager Pkwy
Colorado Springs, CO 80921
Family members can collect the checks and send them directly to our Planned Giving Department.
For many families, it is easiest to have a specific web link where those who are out of town or unable to attend the loved one’s memorial can donate. Compassion would like to help in this process! We can set up a web page for individuals to give online. We will customize this site for your loved one with content, photos and a specific funds to donate toward.
For all donations, our team will send a personalized thank you to the giver, thanking them for honoring the life and legacy of your loved one.
