Instructions for Donating to the Trisha Apte Memorial Fund

1. Online (recommended)

Go to and click on the “make a gift” button in the upper right-hand corner.

On the first page, you will be asked to write your gift amount and choose your gift designation. Please select “other” and write “the Trisha Apte Memorial Fund.” This will ensure that our team allocates your donation correctly.

You will have the option to make your gift recurring. Recurring gifts are an easy way to make a big impact that works with your budget and schedule. If you choose this option, when setting up your gift you can determine the frequency, amount, and duration of your gift. Your annual tax receipt will summarize your gift.
