A memorial is a monetary gift offered in memory of an individual who is no longer with us but whose life made an impact, a difference, in the field of records and information management. Memorial gifts can be made by friends, relatives, co-workers, chapters or regions to recognize the work and contributions of such an individual.
The first monetary gift received establishes a memorial fund and a letter is sent from the Foundation to inform surviving family members of the fund. Separate acknowledgements are sent to the family as additional contributions are received. The Foundation also requests information from donors to help build a memorial web page about this person.
