In Honor or Loving Memory

When you make a gift to the NWC Tribute Program, the family or individual whom you are honoring can be notified of your thoughtfulness with a personalized acknowledgment, if requested. In return, you can be assured your gift is supporting the excellent programs and services offered by Northwest Compass.

Honor Wall. If your NWC Tribute Gift is honoring a veteran, active military or service man or woman who has given their life in service to our country, we invite you to also include a digital or scanned photo of your loved one. Optionally, you may also add a short story or quotation (up to 100 words) and send to [email protected]. NWC would be honored to include your loved one and their story on our Honor Wall

Recognizing Milestone Events

An NWC Tribute Gift is the perfect way to celebrate life’s important milestones. Whether it’s a birthday, wedding, bar/bat mitzvah or anniversary, a Tribute Gift is a meaningful way to show your appreciation to those who have touched and inspired you.

Honoring Guests. A growing number of neighbors are choosing to make a donation to Northwest Compass in lieu of favors. This allows individuals the option of several cards that can be customized and used to notify guests that a contribution was made in their honor. Generally, a $3-$5 contribution is recommended per place card.

In Lieu of Gifts. Another option for neighbors is to request that guests make a donation to Northwest Compass rather than giving a gift. The NWC Tribute Program offers customizable inserts that can be enclosed within invitations to notify invitees of your wish.

Holiday Cards. Honor everyone on your holiday card list by including a customizable insert. Your gift will give hope to the homeless, hungry and heroes in our community­ this holiday season and beyond.
