In Memoriam Donations

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a very special way of remembering someone. Asking for donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral allows family and friends to give a meaningful gift to support people with disabilities and the help that RDA can provide.

RDA can provide donation slips and receipts to all the donors. We will send a list of all the donors to you with the total donated in memory of your loved one.
