Remembering a Loved One
The New Mexico State University Foundation staff can work with you to create a memorial or special gift honoring a person you admire, respect, or want to remember in a meaningful way. These gifts are a heartfelt way to honor loved ones or remember special occasions in their lives. Gifts can be made to any college, department, program, or scholarship that you choose. These may be a one-time contribution to an existing fund or a new named fund (some restrictions apply).
Such a gift is a generous and thoughtful way to recognize a person's life and accomplishments. We invite you to honor your loved one’s passion for NMSU by contacting Diane Calhoun at (575) 646-7738 and setting up a special fund today.
We know that many times memorial gifts are created at difficult times. We offer this language to include in your loved one’s obituary: “To honor the memory of (loved one’s name), the family is establishing a memorial fund in (his/her) name at New Mexico State University. Gifts made payable to the NMSU Foundation can be mailed to NMSU Foundation, P.O. Box 3590, Las Cruces, NM 88003-3590. Gifts can also be made online at giving.nmsu.edu."
Please note that when a gift is made in honor or memory of someone, the NMSU Foundation sends a note to the honoree or a family member when contact information is provided. Gift amounts are not disclosed.
