Tribute Gifts

These gifts are perfect for that special "hard to buy for" recipient and ideal as last-minute gifts. And a Tribute Gift for The Language Conservancy is a gift that fits any occasion.


  • Tax-deductible Donation

    First, make a tax-deductible donation to The Language Conservancy in honor of a friend or loved one, to commemorate a holiday, birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement or other special occasion or milestone.
  • Notification Cards

    Then, use our safe and secure online honorary tribute form, to choose to print a card, send an E-card or have The Language Conservancy send a special notification card by mail.
  • Tribute Letters

    A tribute letter will be sent to the person(s) you designate and an acknowledgement letter will be sent to you. This letter serves as your tax receipt.
  • Secure Online Donation

    Your secure online donation will help endangered languages be revitalized in communities across the world. It will make a lasting impact on the lives of others, just as your honoree has done for you.

Memorial Donations

Thank you for considering The Language Conservancy in planning a memorial Gift. Through this program, friends and family members may wish to provide a gift in recognition for a loved one. Gifts can include pre-written messages, such as:

  • May the peace which comes from the memories of love share comfort you now and in the days ahead.
  • Our hearts are filled with sorrow.
  • We're sharing your sorrow.
  • With deepest sympathy.
  • In loving memory.
  • With heartfelt condolences.
  • Fondest remembrances.
With the help of thoughtful language preservationists like you, we've helped protect over 20 languages, supporting 500,000 indigenous people. Using innovative tools guided by science, we've achieved and continue to achieve lasting results in the more than 20 countries where we work.


  • In Memoriam

    Give a donation in memory of someone who cared about languages and cultures, especially those in need of help and support.
  • Gift Acknowledgment

    The Language Conservancy will send a handsome acknowledgment card on behalf of the loved one’s family via email or postal mail. The family is also notified of each gift made (without specifying the amount.)
  • What Your Gift Makes Possible

    Memorial Donations provide language learning materials, supplies and support for families and schools who are in need of the most basic materials.
  • Celebrate Life

    Your donation provides an opportunity to celebrate the accomplishments of the life of a loved one while supporting our mission: to help save endangered languages.
