Special Gifts


A Memorial Gift is a way to honor the life of someone who has passed on. Families often establish Memorials in honor of a loved one and ask friends and relatives to make gifts to the Memorial instead of sending flowers. Memorial gifts are also tax deductible as provided by law.

  • Mary Jo Jennings (d. 2022): OTM Volunteer Janice Henling gave a Memorial Gift in honor of Mary Jo, a fellow OTM Volunteer.
  • Patricia Crantford Raygor (1930-2020): OTM Volunteer Janice Henling gave a Memorial Gift in honor of Pat, a longtime WHS Board Member and fellow OTM Volunteer.
  • Janice Patterson Griffith (1948-2019): Spencer SooHoo of La Canada Flintridge, California, gave a Memorial Gift in honor of Janice, OTM’s Founding Director and fellow graduate of Winslow High School’s Class of 1966.


A Tribute Gift is a thoughtful way to celebrate a birth, anniversary, or other special occasion. Tribute gifts are tax deductible as provided by law.


A Planned Gift is a contribution that benefits OTM upon the benefactor’s death. The simplest form of planned giving is a bequest, either by including the gift in a will or adding a codicil (amendment) to an existing will. OTM will recognize such gifts in accordance with the donor’s wishes.
