Memorials and Tribute Gifts
Honor Someone Special With a Future Gift in Their Name
If you have a loved one who has been impacted by Syracuse University, establishing a memorial or tribute gift is a meaningful way to honor your loved one or celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday while supporting the work of our mission. Your memorial or tribute gift will be a lasting tribute to your loved one and make a difference in the lives of those we serve.
An Example From Syracuse University
Syracuse native Harry der Boghosian ’54, a graduate of the Syracuse University School of Architecture, was an accomplished architect, watercolor artist and world-traveling photographer. Harry’s four sisters also attended Syracuse University, and when Harry passed away, his surviving sister, Paula ’64, sought a way to commemorate his life. She decided to use funds from his estate for a gift to the School of Architecture, in his honor.
The largest gift in the school’s history from a living donor, the Harry der Boghosian Endowed Fellowship will have a transformative effect on the school for years to come.
