What is a memorial donation?

In Memory donations are a meaningful way to honour the memory of a loved one while making a difference to others.

"In Memory" gifts can help people living with MS in a number of ways, as they can include:

"In Memorial"
gifts or gifts given in lieu of flowers, or sent instead of flowers at a funeral service. Often these were called "funeral envelope donations" and we still have envelopes but we also recognise that in a digital world, easier means exist such as our In Loving Memory website.

"In Honour of"
or as a "Tribute" gift to a loved one that is someone special that might not be with us any longer. This honour or tribute "in memory" gift allows their name to be associated forever with a positive difference for people who have MS. We can customise this to suit, you can give a donation now so you can see the impact live on, or give it later as a gift in Will so your estate/ bequest gift will honour your loved one.

Some people often want to honour their loved one by becoming a regular giver or using a special commemoration, such a birthday, anniversary or calendar event to honour their loved one.

When making a memorial donation your friends and loved ones may have some of the following questions. Here are some responses that may help to make this process easier:

When making a donation, you might want to include a memorial donation message that expresses your sentiments. Here’s an example:

“In loving memory of [Name], a remarkable individual who touched our lives. This donation to MS Plus is made to honour their spirit and help others living with MS.”

The memorial donation amount you choose is a personal decision. Every contribution, no matter how small, can make a significant difference in supporting MS Plus’s mission. Remember, it’s not about the amount, but the impact your gift can make.
