(Your Charity Name) Tribute Fund Scheme

A Tribute Fund is a lasting way to commemorate and honour someone special who has passed away. It is a wonderful way to remember and to help raise funds to support the work of (Your charity).

Your Tribute Fund gives friends, relatives and colleagues a focus for making their own individual contribution whenever and however they want, by cash, cheque or card and by post, phone or online. Each gift is recorded and acts as a Tribute to the person in whose name the Fund has been created.

Whilst many Fund holders undertake sponsored challenges or events to raise money, a large number like to make straightforward donations to their fund, such as in lieu of presents or on a special anniversary.

Every Tribute Fund has the option to go online with its own special website where friends and family can leave messages, pictures and memories and also donate directly to the fund online. On your website you can personalise the design, add stories, music and memorial videos as well as keep a diary. You can control access to your site and can keep it private to selected people if you wish or else publicise it more widely with easy links to social network sites.
