Giving in tribute is a wonderful way to remember a friend or loved one. No matter what the value of your gift is, it will help us to carry on our important work with people with autism. We are especially grateful to be remembered at such a difficult time and personally acknowledge all gifts.
Funeral collections and donations instead of flowers
You can choose to remember someone by asking friends and family to make a donation to us instead of buying flowers. Some people also hold a collection at the funeral and donate the proceeds to us. Funeral directors will often organise this for you. If you like, we will send you collection envelopes that you can put on seats, leave on a table or include in the order of service. Envelopes can either be collected on the day, or people can send them to us at a later date.
If a collection is organised through the funeral director, please ensure they pass on the names and addresses of those who would like to receive an acknowledgment of their gift.
Through Just Giving.com
You can also set up a personalised fundraising page in memory of your loved one. Friends and relatives can then donate conveniently online and have the opportunity to leave a message of remembrance if they wish.
A single donation in memory
If you would like to make an online donation in memory of a friend or loved one, you can donate online and send the link on to any family or friends who might also wish to donate.
If we receive several donations in memory of one person, we can tell you how much has been donated in their memory in total.
Coping with bereavement
If you would like support or more information on coping with grief and bereavement, Cruse Bereavement Care is a specialist organisation that offers a variety of support and information to bereaved people.
