Charitable Donations

Many obituaries will have a notice to donate contributions to a certain charity in honor of the deceased. This is a great way to help cure a disease or disability that the deceased suffered from, or donate to a cause that they cared about.

How to Donate:

  • Most obituaries will include instructions on where memorials should be sent.
  • If the obituary does not specify where donations are to be made, you can contact the funeral home or consult with the family for suggestions.
  • If there is no specific process set up you can send a check to the charity directly. 
  • You can also send a check to your favorite charity on behalf of the deceased. The charity will contact the family with notice of your donation.

Religious Traditions:

  • Judaism and Christianity look highly on donating to charity.
  • Hinduism and Islam tend to feel that people should help the family pay for funeral expenses.
  • If you do not know the traditions of the deceased’s specific religion, there is always information online to help you research.
