Memorial and Tribute Gifts

Celebrate someone with a gift to the San Diego River Park Foundation.

Give a gift in memory of a special person who loved nature or visiting the River. Or give a gift to honor someone or mark a special occasion.

Gifts can be as liitle as $25. Unless gifts are for special opportunities listed below or designated by you, their proceeds will contribute to our permanent endowment or reserve.

In this way, your gift will truly leave a legacy.

If you like, we can send a card to a family member or the person you want to honor (we don't include the gift amount). If you are looking for something different or have questions, please contact us by calling 619-297-7380 or email.
We can discuss available opportunities.
