Donate in memory of a loved one

Making a donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life. 

It is a positive way to help make their memory last and can be a great comfort at a time of loss to remember someone close to you in this way. 

One Emmaus supporter tells us why her family opted to ask for donations to Emmaus at her grandmother's funeral:

When my grandmother died we had a collection at the church service. Knowing that this fantastic woman, who had given so much of herself to others during her life, was still inspiring people to help others, was a comfort. Instead of buying flowers, we made a beautiful bouquet from her own garden which we knew would have meant a lot to our lovely grandmother and mother."

At a time of great sadness, your donation can offer hope to men and women working to overcome homelessness.

How to donate

Gifts can be donated either by calling a member of the fundraising team on 0300 303 7555 or by post.  Simply download and complete the Donation in Memory Form and return it to Emmaus UK, Unit 302 Scott House, The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Birmingham, B9 4AA.

If you are organising a collection at a funeral you may wish to ask friends and relatives of your loved one to make a donation to Emmaus.  We can provide you with donation envelopes which can be passed on to those who would like to donate. 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 deceased.

You can email us to request donation envelopes.  Alternatively, you can instruct those who would like to donate to send cheques directly to Emmaus UK, Unit 302 Scott House, The Custard Factory, Gibb Street, Birmingham, B9 4AA.

Thank you for thinking of Emmaus and for considering donating in such a special way.
