There are many ways to share with the congregation those important moments in our lives.  The giving of tzedakah is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate a simcha, to honor or memorialize someone, give thanks, or acknowledge an important date.  Shir Tikvah will notify any persons or organizations of contributions made in their honor.
