Memorial gifts are a way to honor and remember a loved one while advancing the future of Big Walnut students and graduates.

The Big Walnut Education Foundation welcomes memorial gifts of any size. Gifts may establish a fund or may be directed to another fund already established at the Foundation.

For gifts greater than $20,000, an endowed fund can be established in memory of the deceased. An endowed memorial fund can be established at the time of death or at any later time.

Gifts of any size may establish funds or support current funds. Families may want to suggest in a loved one’s obituary that donations be sent to the Foundation using language such as: “In lieu of flowers, gifts may be made to The Big Walnut Education Foundation. Checks should be mailed to The Big Walnut Education Foundation, PO Box 511 Sunbury, Ohio 43074.” The Foundation will acknowledge all gifts and may periodically provide the family with a list of names and addresses of those who have contributed to their memorial fund.
