Memorial & honorary Gifts

Commemorate a special moment, or honor the legacy of a loved one. 


When the time comes to commemorate a special occasion, mark a life achievement or honor the legacy of a loved one, we will work with you to make this gesture of generosity as easy as possible. 

Options for memorial or honorary gifts include:

  • A custom website for donations with photo and special message

  • A custom message from the family delivered to donors after a gift is made

  • A letter of recognition after all gifts are collected 

  • Contact information and donation information for all donors to the special campaign organizer available upon request

For questions about memorial or honorary gifts, please contact Abbey Freund.


When Waffle House founders, Joe Rogers, Sr. and Tom Forkner, passed away in 2017, their families designated Giving Kitchen as their honorary charity. Together, friends and family raised over $21,120 through honorary gifts for GK, and their legacy helped us serve over 12 grantees in need of emergency assistance.
