How do I Make a Cashless Donation?

In recent years, the use of physical money has declined significantly, as more and more people turn to using cards and online bank transfers to manage their finances. And when Coronavirus arrived in our lives a little over 12 months ago, the decline of coins and notes accelerated even faster, as for sanitation reasons we all tried to avoid unnecessary contact with pretty much everything - cash included.

When someone dies, it’s always been customary to leave a donation to their charity of choice. Traditionally, this was done one of two ways: either leaving cash in a donation box at the funeral or wake, or posting cash to the funeral director who would in turn pass it on to the charity in the deceased’s name.

The last year has seen well over 100,000 people die of Coronavirus in the UK alone, which means there has unfortunately been many opportunities to make donations in memory of someone who we’ve lost. But how does that work in a ‘post-cash’ world? And what are the best ways to go about doing this? In today’s blog, I’m going to try and answer that question, and explain how you can easily make a cashless donation in someone’s memory.

So, how do I make a cashless donation?

The good news is, making a donation without using cash is a quick and easy process. On our website - funeral-notices.co.uk - many funeral directors and members of the public who place a notice choose the free option to take donations for a chosen charity in memory of the person who has passed away. This can either be one or multiple charities.

Those who wish to leave a donation can select any amount they wish to add to the virtual donation ‘pot’. They can also choose to add GiftAid, which means more money will be given to the good cause that has been chosen.

Furthermore, the person donating can leave a message in memory of the person alongside the donation. In some ways this makes a cashless donation more personable than simply putting money in a box or posting it to a funeral director, as you are able to also let the family and friends of the deceased know what that person meant to you.
