Honor & Memorial Gifts

There is no better way to celebrate the life and generosity of family members, Denison alumni or your favorite faculty than by making an honor or memorial gift in their name. You can make an honor or memorial gift online by providing additional info in the “In honor or memory” box on our online form. Please, enter the name of the person you wish to memorialize or honor with your gift.

You can also mail a check to Denison University, P.O. Box 2007, Mt. Vernon, OH 43050. Please include a note indicating that you are making a memorial gift, along with the name of the person you are memorializing.

You will be able to claim the tax-deductible value of your gift. We will send a letter to your honoree or the honoree’s family notifying them that a gift has been made.
