Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Celebrate someone with a gift to the San Diego River Park Foundation.

Give a gift in memory of a special person who loved nature or visiting the River. Or, give a gift to honor someone or mark a special occasion. Gifts can be as liitle as $25. All gifts unless they are for special opportunities listed below or designated by you, will go to the long-term health of the organization - either an endowment or reserves. In this way, you gift will truly leave a legacy.

If you like, we can send a card to a family member or the person you want to honor (we don't include the gift amount). If you are looking for something a little bit more, please contact us, and we can discuss available opportunities.
