Tribute Gifts

One of the finest tributes we can give is one that honors another person or commemorates an occasion.  As part of our continuing mission, Tin Can Sailors offers you the option to give a gift “In Honor of” or “In Memory of” someone important to you.  Tin Can Sailors will notify the appropriate person that you have made such a gift.

Memorial gifts are personal remembrances that honor the life of a departed friend, shipmate or family member.  These gifts are often made “in lieu of flowers” and forever link your loved one with the mission of Tin Can Sailors.

Honor a friend, relative or colleague celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, promotion, retirement, or birth.  This type of donation is often made “in lieu of gifts” and allows your honoree to participate in the mission of supporting the museum ships.
