6. Fundraising in memory

Families tell us that the quality of support you receive can make a huge difference when someone important dies. By choosing to fundraise for Child Bereavement UK in memory of someone special, you can help us reach more grieving children and families and ensure that good quality support is available to them, now and in the future.

Setting up a MuchLoved Tribute Fund

A MuchLoved Fund can be a positive and simple way for family and friends to create a lasting tribute to someone’s life and can be named after the person who has died.

The fund can be set up on the internet so that other people can see it, or can be kept private, so that only you and those you choose, know about it. You can, for example, ask people to make donations on special occasions such as birthdays or anniversaries or encourage them to share memories and photos.
