Donate in memory
In Memory giving allows friends and family to celebrate the life of a loved one by donating to a cause close to their heart. By making a gift In Memory to BEMSCA, you can help us continue to provide care at our weekly day care centre and at home for those people unable to get out the house.
There are many ways you can support us.
Sending an In Memory donation direct to the BEMSCA office.
Setting up a Tribute Fund in the name of your loved one
Ask for donation from friends and family at the funeral instead of flowers.
If you wish to collect for BEMSCA at a funeral, we can provide you with support materials that can be handed out or left on seats at the service. Most funeral directors will be happy to assist with this and we can send information directly to them.
Setting up a tribute fund
What better way of remembering someone special than setting up a Tribute Fund after they have passed on. This fund will enable family and friends to remember and celebrate the life of someone special. You will be able to leave messages, share memories and celebrate the life of someone special. You can raise money for BEMSCA, and all income will be credited to your Fund.
