Memorial & Honorary Gifts
Memorial or honorary gifts can be an especially meaningful way to commemorate a loved one or celebrate a personal milestone while also benefiting the Grays Harbor College Foundation.
You can make a gift to the Grays Harbor College Foundation in memory of someone special by giving to the General Excellence Fund, which allows the Foundation to meet the current general needs of the Foundation, College, and its students. Gift can also be given to an already existing fund or donors can establish a new fund. Please contact our office to discuss current fund options or to establish a new fund.
Should you wish to include the GHC Foundation in an obituary announcement, we recommend the following verbiage that can be personalized to your needs:

Honorary gifts recognize a personal milestone—a birthday, anniversary, graduation, or retirement—with a gift to the GHC Foundation in honor of someone special. Like memorial gifts, honorary or celebratory gifts can be made to an existing fund or by establishing a named fund for a specific purpose. Please contact our office to discuss current fund options or to establish a new fund.
