  • Asking friends and family to make donations at a funeral, or to donate instead of sending flowers, is a way to honour the memory of a loved one. Many funeral directors are happy to organise funeral collections and will often send us the donations themselves.

    You can increase the value of your gifts in memory by using giving envelopes to provide friends and family with information about Tearfund and enable them to maximise their gifts. You can request giving envelopes online or by contacting the Donor Care team at giving@tearfund.org or call 02039063906
