Gifts of Celebration or Remembrance
Contact: (408) 325-5248
Thank you for offering help and hope!
Making a gift that helps others is a wonderful way to celebrate a milestone or remember an important person in your life. Celebrating events such as graduations, weddings, promotions, and retirements takes on a new meaning when you help to improve the lives of children, women, and men in Santa Clara County. Likewise remembering those who have touched your life in a special way takes on greater meaning when your generosity helps those in need.
There are two ways to make a gift in celebration or remembrance: contact Catholic Charities at (408) 325-5248 or click on Donate Now to go to the online Donate Today page. Each gift is acknowledged by a card sent to the honored person or to the family of the deceased person in whose name the gift is being made. The notification does not include the amount of the gift. However, as a donor, you will receive a separate acknowledgement for your own records.
Please note that if you are planning for memorial gifts to Catholic Charities in lieu of flowers, it is suggested that the obituary notice includes this phrase: "The family suggests memorial contributions be made to Catholic Charities. Please call (408) 325-5248 or mail your contribution to Catholic Charities of Santa Clara County, 2625 Zanker Road, San Jose, CA 95134. Please list the name of the deceased with your gift.”
