Send a Tribute - Recognition and Memorials
Make a donation in the name of a family member, colleague, friend, or loved one. When you make a tax-deductible donation to a specific tribute fund, your donation supports the mission of NCJW Greater Long Beach & West Orange County to provide services and advocate for issues important to women, children, and families.
An honorary gift provides special recognition for lifecycle events and special occasions, while financially supporting those in need and at risk. Memorial gifts can pay homage to the memories of loved ones and provide messages of support and sympathy.
Our Section has been actively working to improve the lives of women, children, and families for the last 76 years! So that we can all honor the organization’s amazing past, present, and future accomplishments through donation, please choose from one or more of the funds below.
