Pay tribute to the life of a loved one

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. It's a positive way to help make their memory last and to support Age UK's work to make life better for older people.

We are always particularly grateful for these donations – thank you for thinking of Age UK and for considering donating in such a special way.

Donating in memory is really simple. There are three ways to donate in memory:

1. Online

You can use our easy and secure online form to make a donation in memory of a loved one. You can give a one-off gift or set up a regular gift.

Making a regular gift through Direct Debit is a convenient way to support the work of Age UK. You can set up a gift on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis in memory of a loved one.

2. Tribute fund

An online tribute page is a great way for friends and family to celebrate and remember someone special. You can do many things with a tribute page, including posting stories, sharing favourite pictures and memories, make a donation or use the page for events and fundraising. As everything is stored centrally everyone can access it at any time. A tribute also shows the total raised in your loved one’s name, so that everyone who has contributed can see what they have achieved.

It’s quick and easy to create a tribute page by using sites like Much Loved and JustGiving. These websites take you through a simple step by step set-up process to create your page.

3. In memory collection

If you are organising a collection at a funeral or a memorial service, you may wish to ask friends and relatives of your loved one to make a donation to Age UK.

We can provide you with donation envelopes, each printed with clear instructions, which can be passed on to those who would like to donate. You can order donation envelopes by emailing us at or by calling 0800 077 8751.

Alternatively, you can ask those who would like to donate to send cheques directly to:

  • In Memory Team
  • Age UK
  • Tavis House
  • 1-6 Tavistock Square
  • London
  • WC1H 9NA

Please ask them to include their name and address, so we can send them a thank you letter in receipt of donation, and the name of the person they are donating in memory of.
