Are Giving Basket donors able to give in honor/memory of someone?

This FAQ addresses Give Lively’s role in processing donations through Charity Navigator’s Giving Basket and may not apply to all Give Lively members.

Yes. In the Giving Basket, the donation form allows users to “Donate in honor or memory of a loved one.” By clicking on the plus sign, users open a box with options to donate “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” someone and a field for the “Dedicatee’s name”. There's also an optional field for a “Recipient email” address if donors wish to share word of the donation with another party. The recipient’s email identifies the donor but does not specify the amount of the gift.
