Donate or fundraise in memory of someone

Hands holding a dandelion

Donating or fundraising in memory of someone 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.

You can support Mind in memory of someone in different ways:

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

Make a donation in someone's name

Big Give 2013

We're so grateful that people choose to remember someone special by donating to Mind. Every donation helps us to be there for others who need our support.

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

Donate in memory

Collect at a funeral or memorial event

Collecting donations at a funeral can help Mind to make a lasting difference in memory of your loved one. You might choose to do this by asking for donations instead of flowers.

You can also hold a collection at celebration of life services and memorial events.

We have a range of materials to help:

  • Our collection envelopes allow people to add Gift Aid, increasing each donation by £2.50 for every £10 donated at no cost to them.
  • Our Mind pin badges are a lovely thank you and memento.
  • Our collection boxes provide another easy way to donate.

If you want to send the proceeds of a collection made in memory of someone by post, you should make cheques payable to 'Mind' and post to: Mind, 15-19 Broadway, Stratford, London E15 4BQ.   

Take on a fundraising challenge in memory

Taking part in a challenge event 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.

Fundraise in 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."

Create or find a Memory Space page

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

Family, friends and colleagues can support a Memory Space page 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.
