donations in memory

Supporting Epilepsy Society with a donation in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way of celebrating their life, and will help us to change lives for the better long into the future. Thank you for choosing to benefit Epilepsy Society this way, and for asking people to donate to us.

All donations are gratefully received and we will provide any support we can.

A place for remembering your special loved ones

An online Lavender Fund tribute page can be a very special place for you to remember loved ones and support the work of Epilepsy Society, in celebration of their lives.

In a few simple steps you can set up a lasting and growing tribute in memory of a loved one that can also help us achieve our vision of a full life for everyone affected by epilepsy.

How can I create a tribute?

Whether you're looking for a special place to create an online memorial or you want to create an online fundraising page in memory of a loved one, we are here to provide you with any help and support you need. Below are two ways to create a tribute:

donate in memoryMuch Loved

Through Much Loved, you can create your own personalised Lavender Fund tribute page where you can add photos, videos, stories and memories. A Lavender Fund tribute page is a special way to remember someone you love, share memories and tributes with friends and family and to honour their life, either privately or publicly. You can also use your tribute page to collect donations and fundraise in memory of your loved one to support Epilepsy Society and our work. Epilepsy Society have created our own online memory garden where you can view all our tributes, and your tribute can be displayed too if you wish. As a thank you for creating a Lavender Fund tribute page, we will send you a lavender pin badge to wear in memory of your loved one.

JustGiving

A JustGiving page allows you to tell the story of the person you are remembering and fundraise in their memory using words, photos and videos either publicly or privately. JustGiving also then automatically create an In Memory Collection page on your behalf that displays all of the fundraising being done by others in memory of your loved one.

You can also create a JustGiving page for an event in memory of a loved one, such as a marathon or a walk, as a great way to celebrate their life, anniversary, birthday or simply to fundraise.
