In loving memory

Remember a loved one's life and ensure their light continues to shine through CAFOD's work by making a donation in memory.

Give in memory of a loved one

Remembrance giving

A donation in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to celebrate their life and ensure faith, hope and love live on. By remembering one special life, many more lives around the world will be changed.

We understand that this is a very difficult time for many, especially for those who have lost a loved one. Please know that you are in our prayers. If there is anything we can do to help or to offer a little comfort, please do get in touch.

If you need any advice regarding giving in memory, please contact our Supporter Care Team on 0303-303-3030 or email us at


"We have decided that as Jean often worked for the benefit of others throughout her life, that it would be appropriate to set up donations to one of her favourite charities. CAFOD is an international development charity that reaches out to people living in poverty with practical help, whatever their religion or culture. This was a favourite charity of Jean's as she knew that her donation was going straight to the people on the ground."

Ways to give

Give to a Candlelight Fund

A Candlelight Fund is a special fund in memory of a loved one, where all donations made in their memory are combined to create a beautifully lasting tribute.

Donate in memory

Floral tributes fade so quickly, but a donation in memory of your loved one could change someone’s life forever.

Leave a gift in your Will

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

We also offer a free guide to making a will and a will-writing service.

Light a candle

Just like lighting a candle in church, you can light a candle on our online votive stand to pray for someone who is in your heart.

Each candle is accompanied by a small donation towards CAFOD’s lifesaving work.
