Crowdfunding for funeral costs or raising money to support memorial services offers a meaningful way for people to lend support to folks in their time of need. Losing a loved one is something none of us are really ever prepared for, and it can be devastating to families both emotionally and financially.
While nothing can ease the pain of losing a loved one, we can offer you help on ways to raise money for funeral expenses. Online fundraising can help reduce the added burden of financial stress at such a tough time.
How to Turn Funeral Fundraising Ideas into Action
With a few simple steps, you can create an online fundraiser that will help make overwhelming expenses more manageable and allow others the chance to lend a helping hand through donations for funeral expenses.
- Use free online fundraising so more money goes to your cause. We believe that asking for help should not cost a penny, which is why we charge zero fees.
- Check out our advice on how to get started and how to spread the word. We want to help you succeed and are here to help.

We Are Here to Help
YouCaring’s free crowdfunding campaigns help raise money for a broad range of personal causes, and have more fundraising ideas to help you get started. Many people organize a fundraiser because they want to help a neighbor or support a loved one’s expense related to accidents, disasters, adoption, pets, memorial services, funerals, mission trips, tuition or medical needs.
We charge no fees to set up a fundraiser or to withdraw your donations because we believe it shouldn’t cost a penny to ask for help for a good cause. The only costs are the third party credit card processing fees (2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction) of which YouCaring receives nothing. Our operational expenses are paid by the kind donations of those who believe in what we do, which is to build a bridge between those who are in need and those who want to help.
When you, your family, or someone you know are faced with the death of a loved one, you can help. Families find great comfort in the caring and support shared through online donations.
If you know someone who needs financial support during a tough time, you can start crowdfunding for funeral costs today.
