Memoriums / Honorariums


There are times when a special friend or beloved family member inspires in us a desire to acknowledge and pay tribute to that individual and relationship in a distinctive and meaningful manner.

One such meaningful expression is a charitable donation made in honor or memory of a special friend or family member that can be directed to support health and human programs or services that were significant in the life of that individual.

Please contact Greg Bennett at greg.bennett@uwtexas.org if you have donated to the SECC and would like to have a loved one honored/remembered. When you write, be sure to include who made the gift (you may remain anonymous if you prefer), who the gift is in honor or memory of, and the name of the charity receiving the gift.
