Each Tribute can process in memory donations to any registered UK charities, whether large national charities or small local ones. This includes the facility to effortlessly add multiple charities where requested. All Tributes display the cumulative total in real-time along with full privacy options for donors. As the leading in memoriam organisation in the UK we provide you with the best way for your clients to collect donations for a chosen charity at or around the time of the funeral.

All donations are processed in a secure transaction environment with real-time reporting and notifications for donors and recipient charities as well as a fully automatic gift-aid reclaim service. This means that you can facilitate and encourage funeral giving whilst reducing the normal administrative burden of processing the donations yourself in-house.
