Tulane Honors and Remembers

Gifts made to the Tulane Honors and Remembers Fund provide a meaningful way to honor the accomplishments or memorialize the life of a friend, business associate, or loved one. The Fund exists to ensure that your memorialized loved one’s legacy endures at Tulane University.

Making a Gift

To make a memorial or honorary gift, please donate to the Tulane Honors and Remembers Fund. Please mention the name of the person you are honoring or memorializing with your gift. If you would like Tulane to notify the honoree or a family member of the memorialized person, please also indicate the name and address of the individual to be notified. The notification will include your contact information for family follow-up, but has no mention of the dollar amount of your gift.

If you prefer, you may mail a check to:

Tulane University
P.O. Box 61075
New Orleans, LA 70161

Please make checks payable to Tulane University and include the name of the person you are honoring or memorializing as well as the name and address of the individual to be notified.

We are here to assist you via phone as well. Please call 800-933-6886 (toll free) or 504-865-5794.

What will my gift support?

The Tulane Honors and Remembers Fund is an unrestricted fund that provides essential support to all aspects of the University. This fund provides a unique opportunity for the President and senior leadership at Tulane to direct your special gifts to specific initiatives of greatest need and impact each year.

If you wish to support an existing or endowed fund at Tulane, of course we are happy to assist you. You may choose to designate your gift to an existing fund at Tulane that holds a special meaning for you, the occasion, the honoree, or the memorialized person, including restricted and endowment funds.

Named endowments are a wonderful way to honor someone as they generate an annual impact that will continue to support the university in perpetuity. If you are interested in exploring the criteria for establishing an endowed fund, please contact the Donor Relations Office.
