Tributes, Gifts & Donations
A tribute gift is for special occasions or milestones, and these donations are often made in lieu of an actual gift. These gifts can be for occasions such as an anniversary, a birthday, Father’s Day, or graduation. The idea here is that many of us have too much stuff already. Why not ask friends to donate to Main Street Project instead of buying another Christmas sweater?
For many, the most meaningful way to honour the life of a relative, friend, or colleague is through a heartfelt contribution to the place that played a special role in that person’s life.
When you make a memorial donation to the Main Street Project, you honour a special life by helping us provide the front-line programs that serve people without judgment, meet immediate needs, and provide hope so that people can realize a self-determined version of who they are and who they want to be. Your gift will positively impact people in need.
