Funeral and memorial collections

Thank you for considering a Macmillan collection at your loved one’s funeral or memorial service. This is such a special way to commemorate the life of someone incredibly special to you. We can help you with both online and in person 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. 

  • You can download the funeral or memorial collection form here to print off at home. If you print off your own collection form, you will need to provide your own envelope and write the Freepost address as seen below.

    Alternatively, you can call 0300 1000 200, Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm and Saturday from 9am to 1pm. A member of our Supporter Care team can order you a collection form to be delivered to your door.

    Below are some important points to help you post your collection money and mean we can acknowledge your generosity appropriately.

    • make cheques payable to Macmillan Cancer Support
    • include the name of the person your donation is in memory of
    • include your contact details so we know where you would like us to post an acknowledgement.

    When people donate to your funeral or memorial service collection, they may wish to complete a Gift Aid form along with their donation. This allows us to claim any Gift Aid on their donation which will help the money you raise go further. We have more information on Gift Aid, including our Gift Aids forms.

    If you have downloaded and printed the collection form, please use the following address to post it to us:
