Legacy and remembrance giving

The gifts we leave in our will and the gifts we offer in memory of a loved one ensure our faith, values and love are passed down from generation to generation.

Leave a gift in your will

And these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

1 Corinthians: 13

A gift in your will is a wonderful way to provide for the people and causes you care about.

Legacies left to CAFOD help us to respond quickly when emergencies strike and to make long-term commitments to communities in need. Without them, much of our work would not be possible.

Remember a loved one

When someone we love dies, finding a positive way to celebrate their life and spirit can help us to find strength and hope.

Some people like to make a one off in memory donation, perhaps around the funeral, or to set up an annual gift to mark birthdays or anniversaries. Find out more about giving in memory of a loved one.

Others like to create a lasting tribute to someone special. CAFOD’s Candlelight Funds can be a private act of remembrance or a touching way to involve family and friends in keeping your loved one’s memory alive. Find out more about CAFOD's Candlelight Funds and hear from other families about what their Candlelight fund means to them.

November memorial Masses

CAFOD has been hugely blessed by the kindness and dedication of our supporters.  But sadly over the years we have said goodbye to a number of friends who have passed away. During November, the month of remembrance, memorial Masses are held across the country to commemorate all those who have been at the heart of our work but are no longer with us. 

You can find out more about the Masses or get in touch to add the name of a loved one to our books of remembrance.
