Charity donations for funerals

Many families choose to remember their loved one with donations in lieu of flowers. This guide will explain how to arrange charity donations for the funeral.

How to select a charity and ask for donations

There may be a specific charity that was important to the person who has sadly died, so make sure you take this into consideration when choosing where the money will be donated to.

Funeral donations can be made through the online funeral notice. You can raise money for any UK charity.

Funeral donation box

You may opt for a funeral donation box, allowing guests to make donations at the end of the funeral service. This can be arranged by your chosen Funeral Director. We will give you the unopened donation box after the service and you will need to sign and authorise this.


If you decide to place an obituary in the local newspaper, you may want to mention the chosen charity and provide information about how people can donate in memory of your loved one.
