Honorary & Memorial Gifts

Honorary and Memorial gifts are about love - the love you have for a special person and their love for the land, forests, parks, and trails. A gift to the Connecticut Forest & Park Association (CFPA) is a simple and meaningful way to honor or memorialize a special person, or special people, in your life. Donate Now!

Honorary Gifts are a fun or special way to celebrate a life milestone: birthday, anniversary, promotion, retirement, or finishing a Blue Trail…really any occasion worth celebrating. Honor your loved one with a gift that protects the land. It is also a great gift for the person who has everything or tells you they need nothing!

You will receive a thank you for your donation and your friends will receive a personal letter from CFPA telling them that you have made a conservation gift in their name. (The amount of your gift will be kept confidential.)

Memorial Gifts are thoughtful and powerful ways to remember someone who loved hiking or knew the importance of conservation during his or her lifetime - a gift in that person’s memory is a beautiful tribute to them and their life.

You will receive a thank you for your donation. CFPA will also write to family members or friends, as you request, telling them that you have made a thoughtful gift in memory of their loved one. (The amount of your contribution will be kept confidential.)
