About Our Online Donation Service
Reach plc publishes obituary notices in over 110 regional newspapers, most of which also appear on its funeral notices website - funeral-notices.co.uk. Over 120,000 notices are published on this site per annum and it receives over a million visitors per month. In July 2019 an online donations service was added, allowing funeral directors placing a death notice to add an online collection. The service is managed by Donatis using their fundraising platform, which is fully integrated into our booking system and the funeral-notices.co.uk website. The service is growing rapidly as funeral directors and donors become aware of its benefits, with over 70% of donations claiming Gift Aid.
