Foundation + Giving Tributes + Memorial Gifts

A special way to give

Honor or remember a family member, friend or colleague.

Memorial and tribute gifts, like other gifts, can be designated to support a scholarship, academic program, athletic team, facility or any other aspect of the university that is meaningful to you or the person you are recognizing.

When you make a memorial or tribute gift, the Emporia State University Foundation will notify the next of kin, or the honoree, of the gift. With memorial gifts, a nameplate listing the honoree is also added to our collection of memorial plaques housed at the Sauder Alumni Center.

Gifts may be made online, by phone at 620-341-6474, or by mail to:

Emporia State University Foundation

1500 Highland Street
Emporia, KS  66801

Please note on your gift that it is a tribute or a memorial.
