Information for funeral directors
Many families choose to celebrate the life of a loved one by making a donation in their memory to Marie Curie. Often these donations are collected at the funeral service, sometimes in lieu of buying flowers.
Last year we received £750,000 from donations made at funeral services, covering the cost of over 4,000 nursing shifts.
To make the process of collecting donations as easy as possible we can provide you with a number of materials free of charge:
- Donation envelopes, including Gift Aid forms. By receiving Gift Aid forms we are able to claim 25 pence from the Inland Revenue for every pound donated.
- In Memory giving leaflets with details of our In Memory fundraising events.
- A bereavement guide. Many families find this useful at this difficult time and we can offer you up to fifty copies to distribute to your clients.
If you're sending donations to Marie Curie via post, please use the following address:
PO Box 23897
14 Links Place
Edinburgh EH6 9AB
For further information, additional materials, or to pay in your donations using a debit or credit card, please call the Supporter Relations Team on 0800 716 146.
Marie Curie relies on donations from members of the public to continue to provide care and support to people living with a terminal illness and their families. With the continued support of funeral directors, the charity will be able to continue to provide this vital care and support long into the future.
