Different ways to help your fund grow
Whether you want to involve others or keep your fund as a private tribute, we appreciate all of your support.
Here are some of the most popular ways our friends like to donate and fundraise in memory of loved ones.
Donations on special days
Lots of people like to pay tribute on days that hold special meaning, such as birthdays and anniversaries, on Remembrance Sunday or at Christmas. In this way, your loved one can still be an important part of family occasions.
Funeral or memorial collections
Asking for donations to your Hero Fund is a simple way to ensure tributes are collected together. You will be able to see the amount raised by online and offline donations, and the messages and memories shared by friends and family can be a great source of comfort at a difficult time.
Gifts in lieu of presents
If you have a special occasion coming up (like a big birthday, wedding or anniversary), why not ask friends, family and colleagues for donations to your Hero Fund? Their gifts will change lives and save you the trouble of pretending to be grateful for yet another set of coasters.
Organise a fundraising event
Making the most of your hobbies and talents is a great way to make your fundraising personal and enjoyable. Whether you bake, barbecue, sell pre-loved items, hold a garden party, karaoke competition or sponsored silence you’ll be raising vital funds in memory of your loved one and in the company of people who care.
Fundraise at work
Hold a raffle, have a cake sale, get sponsored for taking part in an event or organise a lunchtime quiz and charge colleagues for taking part. There are lots of fun ways to get colleagues involved and spread the word about your loved one's Hero Fund.
Spread the word
It's really easy to share your Hero Fund with friends and family. By inviting them to contribute you can bring the family together and create a positive focus at a difficult time. Whether you use the social media sharing buttons on your remembrance page, copy and paste your page's url or just tell people to type your loved one's name into their search engine; your Hero Fund page should be easy to find and straightforward to use.
