Forget-Me-Not Tribute Funds
Create a positive and lasting online memorial for a loved one.
Forget-me-not tribute funds are a thoughtful way of creating a lasting memorial for your loved one. They are also a positive way of remembering someone special and supporting our work in their honour.
Family, friends, colleagues and neighbours can visit the fund and leave a dedication or personal message and contribute to the fund however and whenever they would like to.
There are lots of ways of setting up a tribute fund, for example:
- Making a simple personal donation perhaps on a special anniversary
- Responding to an appeal
- Setting up a regular gift by direct debit
- Requesting donations to the fund in lieu of presents for a birthday or other occasion
- Taking part in a sponsored challenge (your own or organised by us)
- Holding your own event, such as a coffee morning or a special anniversary party
John Peters chose to set up a Tribute Fund in memory of his wife, June. John told us how the hospice helped him and his wife:
‘When my wife June was dying, the Hospice at Home nurses came and looked after her during the night and it was a brilliant service for us.’
John wanted to support the hospice and set up a Tribute Fund so that we can continue to help people like June, we are very grateful for that support. You can see June’s Tribute Fund here: www.justgiving.com/johnpeters6/
You can set up a fund:
- Via the JustGiving website so that people can make online donations
- At the hospice so that postal donations can be received
- So that people can use both methods of contributing
Your support will make a difference to people with life-limiting conditions
The money you raise will help our specialist nurses, therapists, and bereavement workers to provide care and support for people throughout Nottinghamshire who are affected by life-limiting illnesses.
Your support will help us to fund the nursing care, medical and other vital services we provide to people throughout Nottinghamshire. We need to raise £3 million a year to be able to deliver our current services to patients and their carers through donations, legacies, our weekly lottery and fundraising activities. So your support really will make a difference.
