Creating a Memorial Fund

Honor your loved one and keep their memory alive with a memorial fund that benefits Three Rivers College and its students.

A memorial fund can be established immediately (to allow friends and families to show their respect with a contribution) or at a later time. A memorial scholarship or other fund creates a meaningful way to honor your loved one, while carrying their legacy forward for future generations of students.

It’s simple to establish a memorial fund in memory of your loved one.

How do I get started?

  • Contact Three Rivers Endowment Trust: Call 573-840-9077 or email Michelle Reynolds and let us know you want to establish a fund. At this point, we simply need to know the name for the fund so we are ready to accept donations.
  • Encourage donors: A statement in the obituary and/or memorial service program is recommended. Suggested wording is “Memorial donations may be made to ‘Name of Fund’ payable to: Three Rivers Endowment Trust, 2080 Three Rivers Blvd., Poplar Bluff, MO 63901. Donations may also be made online at"

What’s next?

  • Complete fund documents: We will follow up with you to determine criteria, charitable goals, or other specific information for our donor agreement paperwork.
  • Send acknowledgements: The Three Rivers Endowment Trust, which is a 501(c)(3), will send official thank you letters and tax acknowledgement letters. If you wish to send personal thank you notes, we maintain a list of names to share.
