Memorials & Tributes

Here are just a few occasions by which you may honor a friend or family member:
• Birthdays
• Wedding anniversaries
• Deaths and anniversaries of passing
• Memorial Day remembrances
• Gratitude
• Special achievement
Personalized Notification
• Tributes and Memorials are recognized with a letter sent to the honoree or his or her family.
• The letter makes no reference to the size of your gift.
• In addition, you will receive a letter of thanks, acknowledging your tax-deductible gift.

Your gift helps ensure that the name of your loved one and the achievements of the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library will live on. Through your gift, future generations will know and cherish Czech and Slovak heritage.

The Wall of Tribute
Memorial or tribute gifts of $500 or more are recognized on the Wall of Tribute that was originally to be found in the Roman Hruska Grand Hall at the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library. The Wall of Tribute was salvaged after the flood and has been re-installed in our new facility.

On the Wall of Tribute, a large wooden plaque displays brass plates inscribed with the names of those honored by family and friends.

This permanent inscription will forever record your lasting tribute to your loved ones.

In Loving Memory--Your Loved Ones Will be Remembered and So Will You.

To honor a friend or loved one, please print the Wall of Memory form, fill out all necessary information, and return the forms with your check to:
National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library 1400 Inspiration Place SW, Cedar Rapids, IA 52404
