What is a Tribute Gift, why make one?  

A Tribute Gift is a donation made in memory or in honor of a special person in your life. It helps support the People Inc. Foundation. 

  • In Memory of - A gift, in memory of someone, is a thoughtful way to memorialize the life of a loved one, while continuing to support a mission you or they cared deeply about.
  • In Honor of - Celebrations such as, birthdays, anniversaries, promotions, awards, weddings or any occasion that brings joy, is a time to give in honor of someone special. You spread the love while supporting the mission of People Inc. and the community it serves.

Here’s just one example of how Tribute Gifts make a difference: 

After the passing of Linda Baruch and Warren Weiss; the People Inc. Foundation received 65 Tribute Gifts honoring the lives and memories of these two very special people. The tribute gifts were designated to benefit the individuals served by People Inc. and the staff at the Newton house. As a result of the tribute gifts the Newton house will continue to enjoy their annual picnic and play games previously hosted by Linda. The picnic was a favorite activity for her brother, Warren. The tribute gifts will also be used to purchase outdoor furniture for residents to enjoy during the warmer months. Each gift is a testament in recognizing their loving relationship, and that their influence on those they left behind will not soon be forgotten.
