Funerals and memorials often come at times when we are most unprepared. They are usually not only emotionally burdensome but financially as well. To help families who have recently experienced a loss we have compiled 3 ways to raise money for funerals and memorials.
- Free online fundraising for funerals and memorials is a quick, easy, and safe way to raise money for families. Online fundraising sites offer an abundance of tools to help meet your fundraising goals in time and don’t charge any fees. They provide a platform for your cause and a gathering place for people to donate directly into the desired account. Most sites are equipped to help you take advantage of social networking sites as well as allow your users to leave comments directly on to your page.
- Fundraising events are a great way to raise support for a funeral or memorial. A great event to have is a memory and celebration dinner of the person life who passed away. Charge a small fee for people to get into the dinner, and then either take a memorial offering or auction off some mementos from their life.
- Facebook campaigns are a great way to fundraise because they can so easily be partnered with your free online fundraising profile. Facebook allows you to reach a broader range of donors and supporters, and also allows for them to interact more with your cause.
