Donate or fundraise in memory of someone

Our office is now closed because of the coronavirus outbreak. During this time we cannot open your letters or acknowledge postal donations, so please do not send anything by post right now. You can still donate online and any letters you have already sent will be kept safe until we can reopen the office. If you have questions or concerns, please email our Supporter Relations team or ring 0208 215 2243

Donating or fundraising in someone's memory is a very special and meaningful way to remember them – honouring their life and helping others at the same time. We’re always incredibly touched and grateful to receive these donations.

Scroll down to find our more about the different ways you can support Mind in memory of a loved one:

  • Make a donation in their name
  • Collect at a funeral or memorial
  • Create a Memory Space tribute fund
  • Take on a fundraising challenge

If you're going through a difficult time after losing a loved one, you may find our information on bereavement and grief useful. You can also call our Infoline on 0300 123 3393, for information on where to get help. 

Make a donation in someone's name

As you make your donation, you can tell us the name of this special person and, if you'd like, you can tell us more about why you are donating.

Collect at a funeral or memorial event

Collecting donations at a funeral can help Mind make a lasting difference in memory of your loved one. You might choose to do this by asking for donations instead of flowers. You could also hold a collection at a celebration of life service or memorial event.

Like many other charities, unfortunately our offices are now closed, so we're unable to send you funeral collection materials or process cheques sent by post. We hope to have this service back up as soon as we can.

You can still pay in donations made in memory by contacting on 020 8519 2122  or at [email protected] - or by using our Donate page on our website and telling us about your loved one.

Please be aware of the restrictions on attendance at funerals due to the coronavirus. To help connect friends and family unable to attend the funeral you may want to invite them to make a donation in memory of your loved one by creating a Memory Space page in their name. Often people use social media to let others know of the death, the funeral arrangements and how to make a donation.

At an appropriate time when memorial or celebration of life gatherings are possible including those people who would have wanted to attend, should you then need any assistance in materials to support a collection, or related support please do get in touch at [email protected].

Create or find a Memory Space

A Memory Space is an online fundraising page and a wonderful way for you to honour and remember your loved one. As well as fundraising, you can share special memories, photographs, stories and even a video about them.

Family, friends and colleagues can support a Memory Space by making donations and/or taking part in fundraising events, and linking these to the page, bringing everyone's support together in one place.

It's really simple to set up, but if you need any support please get in touch.

Simon and Sally's story

When Simon’s sister Amanda took her own life, he and best friend Sally decided to become involved with Mind by fundraising in Amanda’s memory.

"So many of us want to do something at a time like this, but do not know what to do." Memory Space is an opportunity to share treasured memories of him, and to donate money to help others."

Take on a fundraising challenge in memory

Taking part in a challenge event, for example The Mind Walk, or organising your own fundraising event,  is a wonderful tribute and a really special way to remember someone special to you.

Find out more about the different ways you can take part in an active challenge for Mind and other ways you can fundraise in memory.

If you are fundraising in memory of someone with a tribute fund on Mind's Memory Space website, you can link your fundraising page to this. Please make sure you have the permission of the fund holder, before adding your fundraising activity to their page.
