Gifts in Memory of Former Residents
At the very heart of our organization is the purpose of creating memorials to those who had resided in Hawthorne and had died. We maintain large binders to record those who make donations in memory of the deceased which are kept in the Conference Room of Dan Gorden Hall. Each page has the name of the deceased shown with calligraphic lettering, giving the date of birth and death with the names on the reverse side of those who have given a gift to the Memorial Fund in their memory.
In addition to the binders we have all of the information also recorded digitally on a disk which is kept in the Conference Room of Dan Gorden Hall. This disk is available for residents to use. It is updated quarterly.

To make a donation in memory of a loved one or special friend click on In Memoriam Donation Form, or if you prefer to make a donation in memory of a loved one or special friend to ensure the future care of the gardens, click on Perpetual Care Donation Form.
In our early years, bequests of major donations have been received by the Memorial Fund. We have been available to assist financially with amenities and improvements addressed by the Board of Directors and the residents while actively maintaining and improving our Garden of Memories. We are confident of space being available for many years to come for those who desire to be interred in this resting place. We are assured of additional space adjoining the Garden of Memories from the land held by the Hawthorne Residents Cooperative Association. The ability to memorialize those who die will continue in the same manner as is done today.
Our survival is dependent upon continued donations to the Memorial Fund. We hope that you will consider us when you are making donations in memory of a recently deceased loved one or friend. Possibilities for helping Hawthorne's Memorial fund can be found by clicking on the link How Can I Help?.
