Giving in memory of someone allows friends and family of a loved one to donate to a charity in their name. There are many ways to do this: you can set up your own sponsored event in their memory, or request donations to charity as an alternative to giving flowers at a funeral.
Donating in memory of someone is a wonderful way to celebrate their life and bring hope to others. It also gives an opportunity to inspire other friends and family about causes that were important to your loved one. By giving to Christians Against Poverty, you will be setting people free from crisis debt and poverty here in the UK, and offering them a fresh start in life.
How to set up a gift to CAP in memory of a loved one
If you are organising a gift to CAP on behalf of a loved one, we’d like to make it as easy as possible for you. We’ve set out some options below, so you can select which one works best for you.
- Give a one-off gift or become a regular giver in memory of someone.
- Set up a Tribute Page in their memory. This is an online space that’s personal to you, where you and others can write messages alongside donations to create a lasting memorial for your loved one. You’ll also be able to keep coming back to read the messages collected and see how much you’ve raised to help others find freedom from poverty. It’s easy to set up a Tribute Page here with MuchLoved.com.
- Collect donations at the funeral. A Funeral Director may be able to take care of this on your behalf and submit the donations to CAP. If you would like to organise it yourself, you can collect and then donate online, over the phone or by cheque.
- Do a sponsored event in their memory. If you’re feeling a bit creative, and want to do something in celebration of their life, then how about a sponsored bike ride, hike or even coffee morning. You can find more ideas of sponsored events along with support to organise them here.
