Funeral and memorial collections
Collecting donations online
It may be easiest to collect funeral and memorial service donations online. A Macmillan tribute fund fund can be shared with friends and family so they can leave donations and memories at any time. Your funeral director may be able to help you set up a tribute fund for Macmillan, either on our own website or through another provider such as Muchloved.
Collecting donations in person
If you choose to have a memorial collection at a funeral or celebration of life there are a number of different ways you can pay in your collection.
Pay in online
Pay in by post
You could order collection envelopes. At the funeral or memorial service, people can add cheques or cash and if they fill in their details on the form we may be able to claim Gift Aid which will help the money you raise to go further. Cheques should be made payable to Macmillan Cancer Support. If you are posting your collection to us, please ensure you give us the following information so we can acknowledge your generosity appropriately.
- The name of the person the funds are in memory of
- Your details, and where you would like us to post an acknowledgement to.
You can post any cheques and completed collection envelopes to:
Macmillan Cancer Support
PO Box 791
