The Memorial Fund exists for the purpose of providing a place where donations can be made in memory or honor of a loved one. When a loved one passes, many families ask that donations be made to the church. These donations are overseen by the memorial committee and are used to purchase or help fund larger or more lasting items needed by the church. Occasionally families ask that the memorials given in honor of a loved one be designated for something specific and the memorial committee reviews those requests. Memorial donations can be given to the church by making a donation here on the website (click the "GIVE" button above) or sending/bringing a check to Gloria Dei Lutheran Church and specifying that it is for the memorial fund and who it is in memory or honor of.
