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 a loved one dies, our memories 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.

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

Thank you for thinking of us at this time.

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. You can use the page to 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 easy to complete, and you can tell us the name of the person you’re remembering and their relationship to you.

Donate by post

To donate by post, please send your donation with a cover letter and your loved one's name 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).

You could also take part in one of our fundraising events. Teaming up with friends or family can be a meaningful way of coming together to celebrate the life of a loved one.
