Donating in memory of someone special

Hands holding a dandelion

Giving in memory of someone special is a personal way of remembering them. Donations made at the funeral, or during a celebration of their life are gratefully received. Every donation helps us reach out to people who need us, ensuring that no one is left to cope alone with a mental health problem.

Make a donation in memory of someone special

Big Give 2013

If you would like to remember someone by making a donation please donate here. You can tell us the name of this special person as you donate. We'll write and thank you for your kind gift, because we acknowledge all in memory donations where possible.

If you have some donations, or the proceeds of a collection made in memory and need to send these to us, cheques should be made payable to 'Mind' and mailed to Mind, 15-19 Broadway, Stratford, London E15 4BQ. If you're sending cheques from other people, please consider using an appropriate delivery method.

Collecting at a funeral, or memorial event?

Simply collecting donations instead of flowers at a funeral can help Mind to continue to provide vital support for anyone affected by mental health problems. 

We offer a range of materials to help, from funeral collection envelopes, cardboard collection boxes and pin badges. The collection envelopes help to increase your donation at no cost to you, by £2.50 for every £10 donated with gift aid. They are also suitable for celebration of life services, and similar memorial events.

When requesting envelopes, you can also ask for some Mind blue pin badges, and cardboard collection boxes.

Please email us or call 020 8215 2243 if you would like to request a collection pack.
