Thank you so much for considering donating to us in memory of your loved one.

A donation is a wonderful tribute to their life. Gifts of any size given in memory help us to reach the most vulnerable children around the world, and provide the help they need when they need it most.

We hope this page gives you all the information you need about the different ways you can support us and the difference your support can make. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to the In Memory team at any point.

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer and would like to increase your donation by 25% at no additional cost, you can also send us a Gift Aid declaration. Download the form and find out your eligibility.

Setting up a Direct Debit is an easy way to make a contribution regularly. You can give monthly by Direct Debit online.

Organising a collection at an event is a wonderful way to support a cause that was close to heart of your loved one. We will shortly have funeral envelopes and leaflets available to request. In the meantime, please reach out to the funeral director you are working with for some guidance on how to organise a collection.


Many families wish to arrange a collection in lieu of flowers. Online tribute pages, such as MuchLoved and JustGiving a great way to allow friends and family to honour and remember a loved one. They are free to create and provide an online space where friends and family can share special memories, and celebrate a loved one’s life in a meaningful way.  If you need help creating an online tribute page, please contact us.

If you would like to leave a gift in your will or let us know you have already left a gift, please contact our Gifts in Wills team. You can request a free guide and find out more information on leaving a gift in your will.

If you have any questions about making a donation in memory, please contact John McDonald from our In Memory team, or call our Supporter Care Team on 0300 330 5580 (Mon-Fri, 8am-5pm).
