Give in memory

Indian girlsGive a donation in memory and celebration of a life

Gifts in memory support children and families at risk and help prevent child abandonment and neglect.

Remembering someone who you cared for by donating to a cause that was dear to them during their lifetime is a wonderful way to pay tribute.

How do I make a donation in memory?

There are a number of ways you and your friends and family can give to SOS Children's Villages UK in memory of a person who has died. 

Here are some suggestions:

  • Create a tribute page on an online giving website. Just Giving, Virgin Money Giving and BT MyDonate all have memorial giving pages which you can personalise in a few simple steps and invite friends and family to join you in remembering by giving a donation.
  • You can donate in memory of a loved one online

Funeral and memorial service collections

If you are organising a funeral or memorial service there are several ways to raise money for SOS Children's Villages UK:

  • Have a collection for SOS Children's Villages after the service
  • Distribute ‘In memory’ envelopes with a gift aid slip which we can send to you
  • Ask the funeral director to collect donations for SOS Children's Villages UK, cheques to be made payable to ‘SOS Children’.
