Remembering a loved one by making a donation to charity is a wonderful and lasting gesture.
Nowadays, donations ‘in memory’ are often given instead of flowers at funerals.
Making a donation ‘in memory’ to Friends of the Elderly is easy and we can take care of all the arrangements.
If you would like to make a donation In Memory of a relative or friend:
You can donate in a variety of ways. Visit our Donate page for more information.
If you are arranging a funeral:
- We can send special donation envelopes direct to your chosen funeral director who will distribute them at the funeral. These special collection envelopes let donors choose to Gift Aid their donation, allowing us to reclaim an additional 25% in tax from HM Revenue and Customs.
- We can help you set up a ‘Just Giving’ website page so that people can donate quickly, easily and securely online.
Please contact our friendly fundraising team for help on 020 7730 8263 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are thinking ahead to your own funeral:
If you would prefer donations collected at your funeral to go to charity (instead of floral tributes), you should let your executors know or specify it in your Will.
We are truly grateful for every gift.
