Donate in memory

Supporting us in memory of a loved one is a special way to pay tribute to their life.

Remember someone special

Thank you for thinking about supporting Charity for Civil Servants in memory of someone close to you.

Whether it’s a recent loss or you are looking for a way to mark an anniversary or fundraise at a memorial, we’ll do what we can to support you.

It can be very comforting to know that something positive can come out of a difficult time, especially if it is a cause which was close to their heart.

Ways to give

Create an online tribute

In the days and weeks after sharing the news that someone has died, friends and family commonly look for a way to come together.

An online tribute page is a place to share stories, memories and photos. It can also be used for people to make a donation to charities close to their heart.

If you choose to support us in this way, you’ll be raising vital funds to help support civil servants most in need. You’ll create a lasting legacy in honour of your loved one.

Arrange a funeral collection

Many people ask for donations to a charity close to their heart in lieu of flowers at a funeral. If you’re considering asking friends and family to donate to the Charity for Civil Servants, we can provide donation envelopes for your collection or show you how to set up a webpage dedicated to your loved one where people can donate online.

If you have collected funds yourself, you can pay these in via our donation page. Let us know in the message that the donation is in-memory. We’ll contact you to say thank you.

If you’d like to talk to someone about holding a funeral collection and to request materials, please get in touch.

Make a donation

Make a one-off online donation in memory of someone close to you via our website. Please tell us that it is an in-memory gift so we can say thank you.

Your gift will help us to offer lifelong support to serving, former and retired civil servants and their dependents.

Leave a gift in your will

Many people choose to leave a gift in their Will as a lasting tribute to someone special. It’s a significant way to make a statement about who and what was important to you. You can trust that we’ll use your gift to make a lasting difference to civil service colleagues who need our help.

Take part in an event

If you’d like to take on a challenge in memory of a loved one, we can find the right one for you. Events run around the country and throughout the year. Many of the participants are motivated to take part and raise money by the memory of a loved one.
