In memory gifts
Finding a lasting and meaningful way to remember your loved one is important. We can help you make the perfect tribute with a donation in memory of someone special.
Donations in memory of a loved one can bring comfort at a time of loss and help honour someone special by remembering all the happy moments you spent together.
Whether you want to donate in memory to a specific National Trust place you enjoyed together, or more generally to our vital conservation work, thank you for sharing your precious memories with us.
Dedicate a donation
Are you looking for a unique and personal way to honour the memory of a loved one? Our new interactive donation map gives you the opportunity to dedicate a donation to a National Trust place that holds cherished memories.
Maybe there's somewhere that's precious to you – a beach where you held hands and paddled in the shallows, a favourite countryside view where you would rest and talk, or a garden where you walked through the snowdrops on fresh spring mornings. Only you know which places meant the most to your loved one, and how they'd like to be remembered.
When you make a donation to your favourite National Trust place on our interactive map, you'll also get to choose an image from our gallery and leave a bespoke message. And there’s the option to share your donation with everyone or keep it private; just for you or a select few.
In memory collections
Donations in memory are a wonderful way to celebrate your loved one's life and passions.
Every gift made in memory can be remembered in one of the memorial books that are held at our places. We can record your dedication to your loved one and include your personal message. So that we can keep our places special for ever for everyone, we don’t put plaques on buildings or furniture.
At the funeral or memorial service of a loved one, friends and family sometimes like to have the option of giving a donation gift to a charity. We are very grateful to all who remember their loved one with a gift to the National Trust in this way.
Funeral directors can arrange this for you and send your kind donations to us. Or if you'd prefer to organise the collection yourself, you may wish to set up a JustGiving page.
