Memorials and Tribute Gifts

Honor Someone Special With a Gift in Their Name

If you have a loved one who has been impacted by the Towson University Foundation, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor them or celebrate a special occasion, such as a birthday, while supporting our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will extend the legacy of your loved one and will make a difference.

An Example of How It Works

Students on campus When John's mother passed away, he knew he wanted to do something that would establish a lasting legacy for her. He remembered that during her lifetime she was always praising Towson University for its tireless efforts to better the community.

John decided to make a gift to Towson University in his mother's name using appreciated securities. Not only will his mother's legacy live on at Towson University thanks to the gift, but John also qualified for a federal income tax charitable deduction and eliminated capital gains tax on the securities.
