In memory donations are a positive way to celebrate a life, while helping Shelter 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 in honour of a loved one is one way to continue their story, as well as support future generations to change theirs.

There are several ways you can give to us in memory of someone special, please read our donate in memory booklet for full details.

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 us.

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 our donate in memory form, print it out and, when it’s filled in, 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 inmemory@shelter.org.uk or, alternatively, ask your funeral director to collect donations, and send them on to us at the above postal address.

Organise an event

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

Alternatively, you could take part in one of our many 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. Our funeral wishes form may help.

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.
