our mission

IN MEMORY OF was created to help family and friends commemorate their loved ones through memorial donations.  

Our social mission is to encourage, foster and facilitate philanthropic generosity toward social impact programs by increasing charitable contributions in honor of the lives of those recently passed away.  In addition, we aim to help focus that generosity toward community-based programs that may otherwise be unknown to families and potential donors.

We work directly with funeral homes and directors to offer our services to the families who are grieving the loss of their loved one.  We aim to use these trusted partnerships to highlight local non-profit and charitable programs that may be suitable options as the family’s choice of a recipient organization for memorial donations made in their loved one's name. 


our ethos

We believe that each person's life presented here through their individual Memorial Donation page should be treated with integrity.  Integral to these values, this website will remain free from any advertising to ensure the lives of those lost are treated with the utmost respect.

We understand that the passing of a loved one is one of the most trying times for any family.  We believe that honoring that person's memory should be as effortless as possible.  To that end, we will always keep our service free of charge for both the families and the funeral homes who offer our service.

We believe in the spirit of generosity and the sanctity of privacy.  In our current world of constant inundation with promotions, advertisements and solicitations, we aim to hold this small site as sanctuary.  As donors who are willing to give in support of families, your information will always be kept confidential from the recipient organization to allow you to give freely and without consequence.
