Ford Mears understand that many family and friends wish to give donations to a charity in memory of the deceased and we see this as an important part of the service that we offer.
We’ve partnered with Memory Giving, a similar service to Just Giving but specifically for Funeral Directors and the collection of In Memoriam donations. Memory Giving is simple, easy and free to use. Gift Aid, where applicable, is also collected via the site.
Ford Mears set up the page for you, which can be access at anytime. On the page you can have a special photograph of your loved one, a few words and details of the service such as time and place, with a useful map and a space for tributes.
Every donor will receive an acknowledgment, thanking them for their donation. Donations can be made securely by debit or credit card, with all monies collected going straight to your nominated charity.
Donations can be made securely by credit or debit card. All monies collected go straight to your nominated charity within days of your donation. The Gift Aid recovery which Memory Giving provide on behalf of the charity increases the gift by upwards of 18%.
The individual’s page will be kept online for around 6-8 weeks after the funeral and when the page closes, the family will be sent a complete report of all donations.
