A Fund in Memory is a special place to remember and celebrate the life of a loved one.

What is a Fund in Memory?

A Fund in Memory is a personal and very special online space, created by you in memory of your loved one. It gives you a page where friends and family can come together to share their fondest memories and raised money in your loved one’s name for breast cancer research.

You can add stories and photos to make it feel truly yours, and share the fund so that others can add their own pictures, messages and donations too.

Why set up a fund?

Whether you want to make a one-off donation, set up a regular direct debit, organise a cake sale, mark a special occasion, or take part in an event, it can all be done directly through your Fund in Memory.

Every penny you raise will be displayed on your fund and will go towards pioneering, research in your loved one’s name. It will help find new ways to prevent, detect and treat breast cancer to stop it taking the lives of the people we love.

Find out more about our research.

How can I start a fund?

Starting a Fund in Memory is simple and it takes less than 10 minutes to start personalising your fund. Before you start, you might like to find out more about our funds or see examples of some of our existing funds. Or you can head straight to the Fund in Memory website and start creating your fund.

Carmel remembers her sister, Paula

Carmel lost her sister, Paula, to breast cancer in 2008 and set up a fund in her name. She holds a run in her local town each year and has raised over £28,000 in her memory.

“I wanted to continue Paula’s fight. Research came on leaps and bounds during Paula’s treatment; it was research that gave her more time to live.

The money we raise through the fund is helping to advance treatments even further, so that people won’t have to suffer the way she did. "
