Tribute-In Memory-In Lieu of Flowers


Make A Tribute Gift

Losing a loved one is a time of reflection. It is also an opportunity to create a lasting tribute to honor one’s life, military service, and accomplishments. Establishing a “Tribute Gift”, “Gifts In Lieu of Flowers” or “Charitable Gifts In Memory” is a dignified and fitting way to honor the life and legacy of a loved one. Tribute gifts will be acknowledged to the donor and next of kin within a week of receipt, and will begin serving Veterans immediately in downtown Boston.

You or your loved ones can send a gift of any amount to us online by clicking the button below, or mail it to us at:

New England Center and Home for Veterans
Advancement Office
17 Court Street
P.O. Box 845257
Boston, MA 02284-5257

In lieu of flowers, kindly make a memorial donation in the deceased’s name to the New England Center and Home for Veterans, 17 Court Street, PO Box 845257, Boston, MA 02284-5257.

If you are the next of kin, please call 617-371-1798.

For donors:

To be acknowledged as a tribute donor, be sure to include the name of the honoree when you submit your gifts by mail or online.
