What is Memorial Fundraising?

MemorialFundraising.com is a free, exclusive funeral industry "Fundraising Service" that helps families, individuals and friends receive donations from their family, friends and community through social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, etc.) as well as via text and email. This gives both the family and the Funeral Home a multitude of options & benefits that can help reduce or even eliminate the financial burden to the family when honoring their loved one.

Do I have to learn anything new?

No! We do everything for you. Our experienced Memorial Fundraising Specialists create and manage your fundraisers to maximize donations and increase your Funeral Home's revenues.

How do I decide the appropriate goal amount for a Memorial Fundraiser?

The goal should be set, according to the costs of funeral services. You, as the funeral director, along with the family are best-suited to determine the appropriate goal amount that will meet/exceed final expenses.

Won’t families feel uncomfortable asking for donations?

No! A Memorial Fundraiser provides an opportunity for family, friends and co-workers to honor a loved one as an alternative expression of sympathy to the traditional methods of flowers, cards, food, etc.

Are Memorial Fundraising funds paid to the family?

No! Memorial Fundraising donations are paid directly to the funeral home. This keeps the Funeral Home in control of the funds and guarantees payment to the Funeral Home.

How do I receive the funds from a Memorial Fundraiser?

Memorial Fundraising donations are deposited directly into your Funeral Home’s bank account via a secure, verified Stripe account that we create on your behalf.

What if the donation amount exceeds the fundraiser goal?

When a Memorial Fundraiser amount exceeds the fundraising goal, you can return the overages to the family. However, our experience has shown that when a Memorial Fundraiser goal exceeds the anticipated expenses, Funeral Homes are more easily able to offer additional merchandise or services, such as a pre-plan policy, to the family.

Where are the donation funds held and when and how are they withdrawn?

All donations are added to your secure Stripe account as they are received. All funds are directly deposited into your Funeral Home's bank account when a Memorial Fundraiser is closed.

What is the length of time for a Memorial Fundraiser?

From our experience, the appropriate amount of time ranges from 1-2 weeks. However, you and the family can decide how long a Memorial Fundraiser should be active.

Will I be able to follow/track the progress of my Memorial Fundraiser(s)?

Yes. After your dedicated Memorial Fundraising Specialist creates a fundraiser on your behalf, you may login at any time to track the progress within your Dashboard.

Can people donate anonymously?

Yes. Options are available for either the donor’s name and/or the donation amount to remain anonymous.

How do you maximize the number of donations for a Memorial Fundraiser?

The success of a Memorial Fundraiser depends on how often and how well it is promoted by the family. It is important to make sure the family PROMOTES the Fundraiser to all of their family members, friends, co-workers, church members and any organization the deceased might have been associated with or a member of.

The family should post the Memorial Fundraiser link via social media, mobile text and email to family, friends, contacts, co-workers, worship members, etc. Then, ask those they shared with to do the same.

Can I create a fundraiser for causes other than funerals?

No. Unlike other fundraising/crowdfunding platforms that allow fundraisers for a multitude of other causes, Memorial Fundraising was created exclusively for the funeral industry.

Do you launch and manage Memorial Fundraiser(s) for me?

Yes! When you work with us, a Memorial Fundraising Specialist will be assigned to you to create and manage all of your Memorial Fundraisers, doing everything possible to maximize donations and reach/exceed your fundraiser goal amount.

I’d like to say THANK YOU to the guys over at Memorial Fundraising . When we learned that this Service was available, we were little skeptical. After speaking with Bill and Justin we launched our first Memorial Fundraiser. This service is everything they represented and more. We have now done several fundraiser and had great success. Every time we’ve called and needed assistance, day or night, they have always been available. I highly recommend this strive to all funeral homes looking to increase their revenues and help their families and community.
