Top 5 reasons for creating a Tribute Fundraiser

Creating a memorial fundraiser, such as a Tribute Fundraiser on Remember Always, is a great way to get financial support from family and friends to help cover funeral expenses. However, a Tribute Fundraiser can be used for more than just funeral expenses.
These are the top 5 reasons people create memorial fundraisers in honor of their loved ones:
1. To help with funeral expenses or medical expenses
Expenses that arise from handling end-of-life events for a loved one can be expensive and overwhelming, especially when the death was totally unexpected. The Tribute Fundraiser is a great tool for securing multiple small, non-burdensome donations (that add up to a significant amount) from family and friends. Family and friends are usually very supportive and honored to help during the difficult time.
2. To help the children of the loved one
There are times when children lose one or both parents, and need financial support from family and friends for basic living expenses.
3. To benefit a charity or cause the loved one was passionate about
A Tribute Fundraiser can be used to raise money to benefit a charity or cause that your loved one was passionate about. At times, a person may ask that donations go to the benefit of a non-profit organization that fights the disease that killed them. That is a great way to honor a person’s life.
4. To create a scholarship in memory of the loved one
People that are passionate about education are usually interested in having a scholarship fund created in their name. The scholarship can be for the benefit of the person’s children or anyone that meets the qualifications set by the scholarship foundation.
5. To assist the elderly parents of the loved one
There are times when a person passes and leaves elderly parents or grandparents behind with no other care-takers. These people will need financial support from family and friends for basic living expenses.
