Donate in memory

In memory donations are a positive way to celebrate a life, while helping Shelter Scotland to make a difference to the lives of future generations.

When we lose someone, the memories we have of them mean everything.

Giving to Shelter Scotland in honour of a loved one is one way to continue their story, as well as support future generations to change theirs.

Ways to donate

Set up a tribute fund

With an online tribute fund you can create a dedicated page for friends and family to remember a loved one. On this page, you can share photos, music, and memories, while raising money for Shelter Scotland.

You can set up a personalised tribute fund quickly and easily using MuchLoved or JustGiving.

Donate online

Our online donation form is simple to fill in, and you can tell us the name of the person you’re remembering and their relationship to you.

Donate by post

If you’d prefer to donate by post, download this form. Print it out, fill it in, and send it to: Freepost Plus, RTHE-HSKC-XZLK, Shelter, 88 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HU.

Organise a funeral collection

If you’d like to set up a funeral collection, we can send you donation envelopes or collection boxes in the post. We also have lapel stickers available.

Get in touch at or ask your funeral director to collect donations, and send them on to us at: Freepost Plus, RTHE-HSKC-XZLK, Shelter, 88 Old Street, London, EC1V 9HU.

Organise an event

If you want to organise your own event in memory of someone, we can provide Shelter Scotland branded materials (such as balloons and collection boxes).

Alternatively, you could take part in one of our challenge events. Teaming up with friends or family can be a meaningful way of coming together to celebrate the life of a loved one.

Include Shelter Scotland in your funeral wishes

If you want to request that donations are made to us as part of your own funeral wishes, you should ensure that either the executors of your will know or that it’s included in the details of your funeral.

The difference your donation could make

£29 could pay for an emergency call with a Shelter Scotland adviser.

£60 could pay for a legal representative to represent a client at a complex court hearing, giving detailed advocacy, and speaking up for those without a voice.  

£157 could pay for legal advice to help a family in crisis keep their home. 

We’re grateful that you’ve thought of us during this time.

Because of your generosity, we can continue to support people in urgent need, and keep on campaigning for safe, secure, affordable housing for everyone.
