We appreciate you may have some questions about what these changes mean for your fund and hope the answers below are helpful. If you want to discuss anything further please don’t hesitate to get in touch us on 0333 20 70 300 or email fundinmemory@breastcancernow.org 

The changes we’ve made

Tribute Funds are now called Funds in Memory

We hope this will make it clearer to anyone who’s lost a loved one to breast cancer that they can fundraise in their memory.

New ways to personalise your fund

Our new website gives you more ways to personalise and use your fund so it reflects your loved one’s life and personality.

You can post photos and messages, or add regular updates to your page. You can also write a personal thank you message that will be sent to friends and family by email when they donate to your fund.

More ways to donate

It’s quicker and easier for anyone to make donations to your fund and they have more options. Friends and family can donate in the following ways:

  • Give a one off gift
  • Set up a monthly, quarterly or annual donation
  • Pay in money from a fundraising event
  • Light a candle on a fund for £10 as a simple and meaningful way to give

A better website that now works on your mobile phone

We’ve added more information to the website and made it easier for you to use, share and update. The website is now also optimised to work on mobile phones and tablets, so you should have the same experience whatever device you use.

Event fundraising pages

If you have a fundraising event planned, you can add an event page to your fund. This gives you a separate page that automatically links to your fund and will update the total.

We hope this will make it easier to raise money and will keep messages of support for your fundraising separate from the memories on your fund page.

Easier for friends and family to get involved

Friends and family can now add their favourite photo of your loved one and leave a message when they donate, to help share special memories and make your page completely unique.

Share your fund on social media

It’s easier than ever to spread the word about your fund with simple sharing options directly from your fund page, including, Facebook, Twitter and email.

An up-to-date fundraising total on your page

We’ll do our best to keep your fundraising total up to date on your online page up to date so you know how much you’ve raised at any given time. If donations are sent through the post or on another website, we’ll automatically add these to your fund every few weeks.

Regular news about the research you fund

We’ll share our latest research breakthroughs with you on a regular basis, with updates directly to your fund page.

Frequently asked questions

We chose to change the name because we felt it would make it clearer to anyone who’s lost a loved one to breast cancer that they can support us in their memory.

Your fund is of course yours to use as you wish, so if you’d prefer to continue to call it a Tribute Fund that is completely fine.

We’re very sorry if your fund isn’t showing the correct total.

Please contact fundinmemory@breastcancernow.org or call 0333 20 70 300 and we will update it as soon as possible.

The original Tribute Fund website only allowed very small photos to be uploaded. You can now upload a much larger image by logging into your account and replacing the old one.

You should have received an email from us asking you to choose a password for your account – if you haven’t received this please let us know.

Once you have set up your account you can log in and make changes at any time.

The information on fund pages has been transferred to the new website without any changes being made. We didn’t think it was appropriate for us to update the information on your behalf but if you would like to make changes now, you can do so by logging into your account.

If you don't currently have an online tribute fund then you will be unaffected. If you would like more information about how to start a fund online please get in touch or visit inmemory.breastcancernow.org.

You can re-set your password by using the ‘Forgot your password?’ link on the sign in page.

You’ll then receive an email with a link to update your password.

Since the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer to form Breast Cancer Now we have been supporting two tribute fund websites and need to move all the funds to one site.

With the help of some supporters we have developed a new website which will be a significant improvement to both of the previous platforms. We hope the new site will help you to remember and celebrate the life of your loved one, whilst continuing to raise money in their name to fund research.

We’re very sorry if you weren’t aware of these changes before now. We have tried to contact all fund holders by mail and email over the last few months.

If you would like to discuss this further please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Of course, we can unpublish your page from our website and it will no longer appear. Please contact fundinmemory@breastcancernow.org or call 0333 20 70 300 with more details.
