Losing a loved one is one of the hardest things you may ever have to face. But during a time of sadness, finding a way to honor the memory of your loved one can be of some comfort.
Donations made in memory are extremely special to us as is the knowledge that your kind generosity will be helping more families affected by mitochondrial disease. You can donate in memory in a number of ways:
Make a donation in someones name
You can donate via our online system with a one-off donation or monthly payment letting us know who your donation is in memory of.
Set up a Team Fundraising Page
You can set up Team Fundraising Page which will be one central fund inspired by someone special to you. It’s an amazing way of seeing exactly what a difference you make as a group inspired by someone you all love. As well as fundraising, you can share special memories, photographs and stories about your loved one.
Family, friends and colleagues can support a Team Fundraising 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.
Collect funds at a funeral or memorial
Collecting donations at a funeral can help support The Lily Foundation with our vital work. We understand that this is a difficult time but your support will make a lasting difference in memory of your loved one. You might choose to do this by asking for donations instead of flowers, or you may hold a collection at a celebration of life services and memorial events.
