Tribute + Memorial Gifts

A tribute or memorial gift is a meaningful way to remember a loved one’s legacy or express your appreciation for someone special. Your gift will make a difference in the lives of others on behalf of a loved one today, tomorrow, and far into the future while supporting an important cause.

Tribute gifts

When a gift is made in memory, in honor, or in celebration of someone, a special card is sent to the individual being honored (or to whoever you indicate should be notified of the gift).

To make a gift in someone’s name, please be sure to complete all necessary information in the tribute section of our online donation form, or mail your donation directly to: Leukemia Research Foundation, 191 Waukegan Road, Suite 105, Northfield, Illinois 60093.

Memorial gifts

Losing a loved one is difficult, but many families find comfort in honoring those they have lost by requesting memorial contributions be made to the Leukemia Research Foundation. You can invite others to give by asking the person arranging the funeral or memorial service to insert the following phrase in the obituary notice:

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial gifts be made to the Leukemia Research Foundation, 191 Waukegan Road, Suite 105, Northfield, Ilinois 60093, or online at
