In Memory

Many people choose to make a donation to our work in memory of a loved one.

This extraordinary generosity helps to make sure that children and families continue to benefit from what we do.

There are a number of ways to do this. Here’s a guide:

Tribute funds

A simple, positive and lasting way to commemorate the life of your loved one and raise vital funds for Forget Me Not.

Set up your tribute fund now

Our tribute funds are for anyone who wants to commemorate the life of a loved one, while also raising money to support our work with children and families. Perhaps your loved one had a special connection with us and you’d like to acknowledge. Or maybe they supported us in the past and you want to continue making a difference in their memory.

It’s a simple and rewarding way to do something positive in memory of a loved one.

What is a tribute fund?

Put simply, a tribute fund is a way to keep any fundraising you do in your loved one’s name all in one place. Whenever you, your friends and family or work colleagues make a contribution it will be allocated to that fund, so you’ll be able to watch their legacy grow.

You’ll be able to view the tribute fund via a dedicated webpage which you can personalise and use to share pictures, stories and memories. You can also light a virtual candle and leave messages on those special occasions such as birthdays and anniversaries, giving friends and family a lovely way to come together to celebrate and honour your loved one.

How does it work?

Anyone can set up a Forget Me Not tribute fund and there’s no cost to create or maintain it. It’s really easy too – just click here and follow the simple instructions. If you’d like some help, give us a call on 01484 411040 or email and we’ll guide you through it. Or we can set it up for you.

Once you’ve created the personalised webpage, you can share it with friends and family so that they can contribute to the fund. Some people like to have a tribute page so people can make donations in lieu of flowers at a funeral. You can share the page via social media too, or keep it private – whatever suits you best.

Growing your fund

Looking for ways to grow your fund? You’ll find loads of ideas here. If you’d like some help with fundraising, we’re always on hand with ideas, connections and a toolkit of materials.

And whether you set yourself a challenge, host an event or take part in one of ours, every penny you raise in your loved one’s name will go towards helping the local children and families we support.
