17 Jul “In lieu of flowers” Obituary Memorials
Should you choose to include the Community Foundation in an obituary, we suggest the following verbiage:
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made in memory of <<Deceased’s Name>> to the: <<Name of Fund>>, c/o Community Foundation of Grant County, 505 West Third Street, Marion, IN 46952. Donations may also be made online at www.GiveToGrant.org/Memorial.
(Call or email the Community Foundation for specific link details to other funds.)
If a fund has not been established or decided upon at the time of printing the obituary, indicate the Community Foundation Memorial Fund for the time being. We understand there are numerous details to work through when a loved one dies. We will hold donations in that fund for 90 days, giving you time to mourn and process through other responsibilities, until the time is right to decide how best to direct those charitable gifts. After the funeral, connect with the CoFo team to make those decisions. If a decision is not made after 90 days, we will place the donations into our Give To Grant Fund where they will forever support local charitable causes in memory of your loved one.
Donation envelopes are also available for funeral services by request.
