Why set up a Tribute Fund?

Setting up a Mencap Tribute Fund is a special way to remember and celebrate your loved one, that you can share with family and friends. You can also use it to fundraise in your loved one’s memory.

Celebrate the Memories

It only takes a few moments to set up a Fund and then you will be able to share pictures, music, video, and even light a virtual candle to remember your loved one. If you have any questions about setting up a Tribute Fund and need to speak to someone, please don’t hesitate to contact our In Memory Team on 0845 077 0777 or email inmemory@mencap.org.uk.
