Yes, when you make the initial recurring donation to a charity, you can make the donation in your friend of loved one’s name as a gift, or in memoriam of someone. Just be sure to check the “Make this a monthly recurring donation” when creating the donation. Then every month when the donation is sent to the charity, it will include your gift or memorial designation.
Please note that once a recurring donation is created, you will not be able to change the gift or memorial designation on it. If you want to discontinue a designation on your recurring donation, first cancel the recurring donation. Then make the donation again, set it to recurring, but do not include a designation.
