Donating money to a charitable cause is a common way of honouring a deceased person. Often the obituary notice includes a wish for a specific fund and if you choose to donate the relatives will receive a memorial sheet that specifies who the donation is from.
Below you will find some of the largest and most common funds. These are reputable and approved for a “90 account” in the payment systems plusgiro and bankgiro which are controlled by Svensk Insamlingskontroll and are thereby a guarantee that the help will reach the promised cause.
The donations should be made well in advance for the memorial sheet to arrive prior to the funeral.
It is possible to do this directly on the organisation’s website or by paying money into a fund’s bankgiro or plusgiro.
Important information to notify the fund when making a donation is the following:
- The name of the deceased
- Date of the funeral
- Any commemorative words and the names of those who made the donation
- An address the memorial sheet shall be sent to (for example a relative or the firm of undertakers)
