Make a gift in memory

A gift in memory of someone you’ve loved can change lives and fight poverty

Losing someone you love is always hugely difficult, and never more so than during this unprecedented pandemic. 

At Christian Aid we understand that a gift in memory says so much about the person it honours – as each gift is as unique as the person remembered. Here you can find out more about choosing to support a specific area of our work or about setting up a page in your loved one’s memory.

Remembering Andrew

Iain’s youngest son Andrew was a plumber, a practical person whose smile lit up a room. When Andrew died it was important for his family to be able to give to water projects in his memory – to connect their gift to something which had been so important to Andrew during his life.

Giving a gift of over £1,000?

Through partnerships with UK aid, Irish Aid, Scottish Government, European Commission, USAID and other key donors and partners, we are able to work together and make a large-scale, deep and lasting difference to people’s lives.

If your gift is over £1,000, you can choose to give to one of these co-funded partnerships:

  • A project in Kenya. A gift to this project will transform life for orphaned and vulnerable children affected by HIV/AIDS, enabling them not just to survive but to thrive. £1,000 will become £19,000 thanks to a co-funding partnership.
  • A project in Malawi. You’ll help families break the cycle of poverty through targeted food support, and by helping to build their savings. £1,000 will become £7,000 thanks to a co-funding partnership.

Contact our in memory giving team by email, or on 020 7523 2173 to learn more about these projects.
