Funeral-Notices - the UK’s largest tribute site, publishing over 120,000 obituary notices p.a. These all appear in one of Reach’s 200 local and regional newspapers across the UK, as well as on line at funeral-notices.
Working together, we have developed our software to allow us jointly to offer a complete online donations service to UK funeral directors. For a fixed fee of just £8 per notice, we can add online collections to the page. Just add the option tell us the charity and we do the rest.
Call the funeral director team to place your notice and add the collection service on 03444 060 276 (office hours) or via mail at: firstname.lastname@example.org
WE DO ALL THE WORK FOR YOU
Its so easy, just add online collections when you place your Obituary Notice with Reach, tell them the charity, group or cause the family wish to collect for and together, we do the rest!
Donors go to the Funeral-Notices website - the online home for all Reach’s obituary notices. Click the donate button, add their details and in 30 seconds their donation is added. They can also add tributes, light candles and upload photos and videos in memory.
The collection is open for 8 weeks, after which we send the money (and if applicable the Gift Aid details to claim) to the charity, group or cause and send you, the funeral director, a report of all donations received - for you to pass onto the family. We ask the recipient of the funds to acknowledge receipt to yourselves, to complete the process.
The complete service costs just £8 when you place the notice.
collecting for local charities & groups
Most online systems only allow you to collect for registered charities, but with ours, you can choose local groups and sports clubs, or even for an inscribed wooden bench - to go in the local park! … whatever your family choose….
As long as you, the funeral director, are satisfied with the cause the family have chosen, we can set it up for you. We even get some crowd funding collections, to help pay for the cost of the funeral - especially if it was unexpected.
For registered charities, we also have the capability to collect Gift Aid for them to claim, boosting each donation by 25% and if its for a national charity, you can even specify the local group, ward, team etc. the donated funds are to go to.
And vitally, unlike others, we take NOTHING from the donation except the card transaction fees at cost.
