CHARITYSMITH: National Society of Memorial Funds

CHARITYSMITH was established in 1994 by Brooks H. Rohlen, MD as the Douglas F. Smith Memorial Foundation (DFSMF). This initial memorial foundation gave a scholarship each year to a student, artist, or athlete.

Over the years we saw the need for a cost-effective avenue to quickly and easily establish a nonprofit foundation in memory of a loved one, and our mission evolved accordingly. Today, for those who feel inspired to do so, CHARITYSMITH offers a simple and expedient pathway for the creation of memorial funds. By contributing to the lives of others, we remember and honor the lives of those who have passed.

Good lives, well remembered.
