|How to Make a Memorial Gift
Memorial gifts can be in memory of a loved one who has died or in honor of a loved one who is still alive. If you would like to designate your memorial, you should place your gift in a separate envelope from your regular offering. Be sure to include your name, your address, and the fund you would like the memorial deposited into on the envelope. This an important step to help ensure your gift is properly recognized and designated because the financial secretary only receives envelopes and a listing of loose checks ? not the actual checks which are deposited promptly. The Memorial Committee is responsible for sending thank you notes for all memorial contributions. Memorial gifts will also be acknowledged on the statement you receive from the financial secretary.

*memorial gifts can be divided between funds
Memorial Committee requests are carefully considered. Decisions are based on whether an item qualifies as a suitable memorial and will enhance the worship experience at French River Lutheran Church. The committee may disburse memorial gift fund money of $500 or less, consistent with fund designation, at their discretion through the church treasurer. Disbursements of more than $500 need to be approved by the church council. The committee meets regularly in March, June, September and December and at other times as necessary. Memorial funds should be requested prior to the purchase of an item(s) and not used for reimbursement of expenses already incurred.
Memorial Fund requests should be submitted using the form available on the FRLC website or in the Memorial Committee mailbox located outside the church office.
