In Name Of
Are you stuck on what to give someone for a birthday, anniversary, Christmas or other occasion? Does the recipient share your commitment to upholding the value of life? What better way to honor the occasion than by making a donation to Right to Life of Northeast Ohio in the recipient’s name?!
Our country was founded on the principles of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. It’s a sad fact that there are many people rationalizing that human life in it’s earliest or latest stages is expendable. Our work to change the culture of life is ongoing, and a donation is a wonderful testament to the recipient of the importance of their own life.
When you give a gift of life, we will send the recipient an acknowledgement gift card (sample shown at right) with both the recipient’s name and your name. We will keep the amount of the donation private so that your recipient will not know the amount of the donation.

In Memory Of
While it sounds like this type of donation should be for a gift when someone passes away (which is perfectly okay), a donation in memory of someone can actually be given on any occasion particularly if the recipient was very close to the person that passed away. The gift is a loving reminder of the deceased to honor the sanctity of their life. This is also a wonderful way to honor the deceased on the anniversary of their passing. By making a donation in the name of the deceased, you are letting the recipient know that the life of their deceased loved one goes on by helping to protect the innocent lives of those who cannot speak for themselves.
When you make a donation in memory of someone, we will send a card (sample pictured at left) to the recipient with both the name of the deceased person and your name on the card. We will keep the amount of the donation private. CLICK HERE to print an order form, or call our office at 330-762-2785.
Create an enduring legacy through your will.
Sometimes we wonder about how we will be remembered after we’re gone. Will anyone be better because of how we lived? Did we make a difference? Will our family and friends think we helped improve their lives? Will the world be a better place because of our efforts? Leaving a bequest in your will allows you to continue to make a difference by helping others; it reflects your values, beliefs and the people and organizations that matter to you.
As you think about creating a legacy of your own, Right to Life of Northeast Ohio is one of the organizations you may choose to support. Your generosity will help us to continue in our cause of restoring a culture of life to our country so that a guarantee of life is given to all.
A little planning on your part now could save your heirs a lot of time and money later. A good will is a very important part of taking care of the assets you’ve accumulated over your lifetime and how you would like them to be used when you are gone.

- You can designate your bequest for general use, or you can restrict its use to a specific program.
