Candlelight Funds

Just as we light a candle for a loved one who’s passed away, creating a Candlelight Fund in their name is a special way to remember them. Candlelight Funds celebrate a life and touch thousands more.

How Candlelight Funds work

A Candlelight Fund is a special fund set up in memory of a loved one who has died, combining any donations made in their memory. 

A fund can be a personal act of remembrance or you can invite others to join in with the fundraising. There are no targets, deadlines or minimum amounts involved: this is your fund and you can grow it in whatever way feels comfortable.

Lots of our funds are now online so friends and family can donate easily and whenever suits them. 

If there is a particular area of our work that meant a lot to your loved one, we will do our best to accommodate that. Just let us know.

It is reassuring for us to hear how much Kieran’s fund is helping those in need. It gives us strength and a sense of purpose.

Many families tell us they gain comfort and hope from knowing their loved one’s memory and values live on through their fund, as described by the Narotham family who support our work as a tribute to their dearly loved son and brother, Kieran

Thank you very much for thinking of CAFOD as a way to remember someone special.
