Donate in memory

Remember a loved one by donating money in their honour.

Honour the life of a loved one by making a donation in their memory to the British Red Cross.

Their memory will live on through our work as we support people in crisis.

Donating or fundraising in memory is a special way to remember someone. We are always touched to receive these donations. 

You can make a one-off donation, organise a funeral collection, or fundraise in someone's memory.

How donations in memory will help 

Donations in memory will go to our general fund. This fund supports all areas of our work and helps us deliver vital services in the UK and overseas. 

We are emergency responders in a crisis. We will always listen to what people need and get them the right help - whether that's food, clothing, first aid, cash, healthcare or emotional support. 

Our teams work in 192 countries under the same red cross emblem – a powerful symbol of protection.
