I feel like more people should know about this service. I really believe it is a great alternative to other crowdfunding sites, as it really focuses more on the loved one as opposed to just fundraising. We really felt like we were honoring Rebecca's memory and at the same time expressing there was an avenue to support the family financially for those who felt compelled to assist in that way.

Why set up an online memorial fund?

Memorial funds are a great way to help cover funeral expenses and other costs or raise money for a cause that was important to your loved one.

Memorial fundraising is becoming commonplace as a way for others to express their sympathy and make a gesture in memory of the deceased. A death in the family often causes financial hardship and unexpected expenses, and crowdfunding can help to relieve financial burdens.

Others prefer to suggest that their friends and family members make a charitable donation in lieu of sending flowers.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a memorial fund?

A memorial fund is a way to raise money in memory of someone who passed away. Memorial funds can benefit a charitable cause (or multiple charitable causes) that the decedent cared about or be used to help with personal expenses, such as funeral costs, a memorial bench or a college fund. It's common for people to want to make a gesture when someone passes away and many will be looking for memorial donation ideas, so creating a memorial fund is a great way to guide people in the direction of what would be most helpful or meaningful.

How do I set up a memorial fund?

Even if you've never done it before, learning how to set up a memorial fund is easy. Start by creating a memorial website for your loved one. From there, you'll be prompted to add information on what the memorial fund is for and how much you'd like to raise, if you have a goal. Once you're happy with the website and fundraiser, it will be easy to share with friends and family via email, text, Facebook and more. Anytime someone donates, the funds will be automatically transferred to the bank account you link.

What is memorial donation etiquette?

Donating to a memorial fund is always optional, but we've found that a large number of people generally want to make a gesture and support the family after someone passes away. If you're donating to a memorial fund, donate whatever amount you feel comfortable with; every gesture is important--whether it's $10 or $10,000. If you're still unsure what's appropriate, a good loose guideline to follow is to donate roughly what you'd otherwise spend to send flowers, which is usually between $50 and $300.
