Memorials and Tributes

The Memorial Tribute Fund

Memorial and tribute contributions are gifts to the Sam Houston Area Council’s endowment and are a gratifying way for individuals, businesses, or groups to remember special friends. Your special donation in memory or honor of an extraordinary individual in your life will be acknowledged and handled with great care. Tributes are suitable for special occasions such as birthdays, anniversaries, or holidays.

Memorial or tribute gifts from individuals of $500 up to the lifetime cumulative maximum of $25,000 directed to the endowment of the Sam Houston Area Council by December 15 will be matched by The Cockrell Foundation Matching Gift Program. Please check the box on the form if you would like your gift matched. The honoree or memorial will become a life member of the James E. West Fellowship.

Memorial and tribute notifications will be mailed and serve as a unique way to honor those close to you. You can mail or fax the form below or complete your gift online.
