We understand that the loss of somebody close is a deeply personal experience. Tribute funds are a unique way to make a lasting tribute to a loved one and for many people, supporting a cause by concentrating your time and effort into keeping a memory alive can help with loss.
You can set up a tribute fund in the name of your loved one and, as it is personal to you, you have the choice of how and when it is added to. Your gifts, and those of your family and friends who can also be invited to contribute, will help us continue to care for people with life-limiting illnesses.
How does it work?
Once your fund is created, you can add to it at any time. For example, you may choose to celebrate a special day or anniversary by contributing to the fund, whilst others may hold their own fundraising event or take part in one of our events such as the Midnight Memories Walk. You will also have an online giving page where family and friends can contribute to the fund online.
There's no limit as to how little of often you can donate to the fund. We will write to the tribute fund holder once a year with an update on how much has been raised and the work that it's supporting.

This has given me a focus to help during the tremendous ordeal of grieving and trying to make sense of it all
