Your Hero Fund Page
When you create your Hero Fund account you’ll be given your own fundraising page to personalise and share.
You can update this page at any time, so please don't worry if you don't have pictures and the perfect message at hand when you first set up your Fund.
You can visit your page as often as you like and enjoy looking at the photos of your Hero and reading the loving messages left by friends and family. Indeed - we heartily recommend it.
Making it personal
You can personalise your page by sharing a few words about your loved one. Explaining why you’ve chosen to commemorate them in this way will help others to understand your hopes for the fund, as well as inspiring them to join in. Why not upload your favourite photos of your Hero and share a video to make it extra special for everyone involved?
You can also choose from one of four colour themes – Navy Blue, Army Red, Airforce Blue or Tricolour - a combination of all three colours that represent the different service branches of our Armed Forces.
Sharing your page
Sharing your Hero Fund page via Facebook, Twitter or email is an easy way to raise awareness and donations at the click of a button.
You don’t have to set a fundraising target but many people find this encourages others to contribute and feel part of a shared mission.
Donors can choose to give anonymously if they wish, but we find most people like to leave messages of support to show they're thinking of the family. You can personalise the thank you email contributors will receive so they know you appreciate their support at a difficult time.
Your page is secure so you can donate and ask others to give with confidence. Donors’ details will be stored safely and used in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
Arranging a memorial or fundraising event, or asking for donations instead of presents for a birthday or a wedding? Whatever the occasion, you can create event pages within your fund and see how much has been raised.
All donations will be added to your grand total; helping your memorial to grow and help even more people.
Keeping you updated
It's really easy to keep an eye on your fund’s progress. You can even choose to receive email notifications whenever someone donates or creates a new fundraising event for your Hero Fund page.
