Donate in memory of a loved one

Supporting The Brain Charity in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way to continue their legacy.

We thank you for your support, and hope the thought of helping others offers you comfort at a very difficult time.

By remembering someone who has passed away through a donation or fundraising, you are paying lasting tribute to them and keeping their memory alive.

You are also supporting The Brain Charity’s vital front line work supporting people affected by all forms of neurological condition.

Create an online memorial website

The easiest way to collect donations for The Brain Charity in memory of someone who has passed away is to set up an online remembrance page.

This is completely free, and you can share your loved one’s memorial website with anyone who would like to make a donation to The Brain Charity in their honour.

You can also use it to light virtual candles, share photos and remember them by posting stories, memories and eulogies.

Our virtual memory wall

The Brain Charity has set up a virtual memory wall to celebrate the lives of those who have passed on.

We are always truly honoured when families and friends choose to donate to The Brain Charity in memory of someone they held dear, so created a virtual tribute wall for our supporters to share memories of their lost loved ones.
