In Honor Gifts

Honor Gifts are a special way to acknowledge the important people in your life, often given on special occasions, such as birthdays, graduations, Bar Mitzvahs or anniversaries or on holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, Mother’s Day, and Father’s Day. A special acknowledgement card will be sent to the honoree notifying them of your thoughtfulness.

In Memory Gifts

Memorial gifts are a meaningful and lasting way to celebrate the memory of a loved one, relative, friend, or colleague with a gift that will help people in need in Chicago. Your gift will serve as a permanent reminder of the impact this person made during their lifetime. When a memorial gift is received by The Night Ministry, a letter is sent to the donor to acknowledge the gift, as well as to any persons that the donor indicates should receive an acknowledgment card.


To make an honor or memorial gift, donate through our online donation page and designate your gift as “in honor” or “in memory.” Or contact Christy Prassas, Vice President of Philanthropic Engagement, at 773-506-6023 or This email address is being protected from spambots.

In Lieu Gifts

Are you getting married, having a civil union ceremony, or throwing a birthday party but don’t want or need gifts? Have your guests make a donation to The Night Ministry in lieu of a present. You can tell your family and friends about your wish through email, a personalized card, or by setting up a wish on causes.com. This also works well during the holiday season!
