In Memory


When we lose someone, the memories we have of them mean everything. Giving to Born Free in honour of a loved one is a way to continue their story and help protect the wildlife and wild places they loved.

Whether you’d like to make a one-off gift, hold a funeral collection, or set up a tribute fund, all donations in memory made to Born Free are deeply appreciated.

Your loved ones In Memory Tribute Fund can continue to make an impact in the future as you remember and celebrate their life on special anniversary dates by donating in honour of their passion for the natural world.

Here are some of the ways you can donate in memory:

Collecting donations at a memorial event, funeral or celebration of life service can help Born Free make a lasting difference in memory of your loved one. You might suggest donations instead of flowers at a funeral. Let your funeral directors know you would like to collect donations for Born Free and they can take care of the administration for you.
