Frequently Asked Questions

The FPS Beach of Inspiration is a place of respite where we can peacefully honor and remember our loved ones. This space showcases the love we have for our friends and family, and allows us to share messages of inspiration.

There are two options to donate (memorial or honorarium), and you choose your gift type on the donation form. Once you make your gift, it will create a new page or be added to an existing page. If you think a loved one already has a page, PLEASE search their name first to avoid a duplicate page creation. If multiple people create a page for a loved one, the page will be launched by the first person to create the page and all other messages will be added to that page.

What is a gift in memory or a memorial gift?
