Start a Memorial Campaign

The death of a loved one is always difficult. A memorial campaign can help to keep your loved one’s memory alive, provide comfort to your shared community, and have a lasting impact.

You can start a campaign to support a cause your loved one was passionate about, to play a role in the fight against an illness that impacted their life, or to fuel the work of a special doctor or scientist.

It’s a beautiful way to honor your loved one’s legacy and bring your community together.
