Tribute Funds

A tribute fund is a way of celebrating the life of a loved one, whilst raising money for St Ann’s at the same time.

What is a tribute fund?
Dealing with a loss can be very difficult, and often people want to do something positive in memory of their loved one. A tribute fund gives you a way to do that, in a way that suits you. Family, friends and colleagues can join together in honour of someone special, whilst raising vital funds for St Ann’s.

How do they work?
The fund is named after your loved one, and you and anyone else can contribute in any way that feels right. For example, a family member might recognise a birthday or anniversary by asking for donations instead of gifts, whilst a former colleague may choose to run a marathon and raise sponsorship in their memory. Some people prefer to set a fixed time period, whilst others are ongoing.

Why raise money for St Ann’s?
St Ann’s is a charity, and we need to raise around £20,000 a day to keep providing all of our services. As well as celebrating the life of your loved one, a tribute fund can really make a difference to the lives of our patients and their families and friends.

A family member of one of our patients recently told us that “Love, compassion and empathy was shown to us by every member of the St Ann’s Hospice staff.”

How your donations make a difference

We’re so grateful for all the support we receive. Some people want to just raise as much as they can, whilst others like to set themselves a target.
