Manhattan Community Memorial Fund

Giving a gift in honor or memory of a loved one to the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation is a meaningful way to celebrate life.

In 2015, the Manhattan Community Memorial Fund was created to endow pooled memorial gifts in memory of loved ones having local roots or connections to the area. Through the combined gifts made to the foundation to honor local loved ones, the principal will continue to grow.

From the earnings of this fund, year after year the GMCF Executive Board of Trustees will make annual grants for the betterment of our area. Thus, your gift of today will also build a lasting legacy for the future.

Memorial notebooks will be displayed at the local funeral homes, as well as the community foundation office, available for the public to view. Each person honored through this fund will have a dedicated page and, if so desired, his or her picture.

A virtual Memorial Wall has also been established on the Greater Manhattan Community Foundation website at As annual community grants are made, contributor information will be published in local media and foundation materials.

The Greater Manhattan Community Foundation (GMCF) is a unique charitable vehicle offering the opportunity to give back to our area to improve quality of life now, and for the future.
