Honorary and Tribute Gifts

Honorary and Tribute Gifts

One of the dearest ways people help is by directing honorary and tribute gifts to the organization. When a loved one dies, we’ve had several people ask their family and friends to donate to Crossroads in lieu of flowers. We’ve also had people ask for donations to be sent to Crossroads instead of receiving gifts for birthdays, anniversaries, retirements, and so on.

These funds are instrumental in serving our students and families; we are blessed by the thoughtfulness and meaning involved. We have been able to do more here because of this help.

If you are at this point in your life, here is a card that you can adapt and use to distribute at your gathering of loved ones, or electronically.

Dear friends and family,

Thank you for celebrating with us today. We ask that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to Crossroads Center for Children. Crossroads is a nonprofit organization serving children with special needs, and their work is important to us. 

Donations can be mailed to Crossroads Center for Children, 1136 N. Westcott Rd. Suite 100, Schenectady, NY 12306

or made online at http://crossroadcenter.org/donate-to-crossroads/.  Please include a note that your gift is in tribute to (name of the deceased). Crossroads will let us know of your donation in (his/her) name.
