Donations made in honor or in memory of a friend or loved one are lovely gestures in lieu of a more traditional gift. To make a gift in honor or memory of someone, you can fill out the donation page online (please remember to include the name and address of who we should notify of the honor or memorial in the "Tributes" portion of the donation page). Hubbard Street will send a card on your behalf notifying the honoree or family of the honoree that a donation has been made in his/her name, and you will receive a receipt for a tax deduction.
