CODA established a Memorial Fund to honor those who have touched us either as CODA International members, fellow codas or those who have supported and nurtured our coda identities. This fund contributes directly supporting Codas to attend CODA conferences.
Codas, family and supporters named in memorial who have passed away will also be honored in a live ceremony during the annual CODA conference.

This is in memory of those honorees who gave to us so that we might enrich others.

If you’d like to donate or submit a honoree to the Memorial Fund, please click here.
