It’s easy to make a gift in memory of a loved one. Some families choose special days, such as a birthday, an anniversary, or even Christmas, to make an annual gift in memory of someone dear to them.

You can even choose a specific area of our work to support, or you could set up a tribute fund page.

Make a gift in memory

You can choose to support our work in general, or directly support our education, water or agriculture work.

Choose how your gift in memory can change lives

If your gift is over £1,000, you can choose to give to:

  • One of our projects in Ghana, promoting local economic development and opportunities for women and young people
  • A project in Burkina Faso, enhancing disaster response, preparation and preservation

Christian Aid co-funds these projects with the European Commission. For the Ghana project, the European Union has agreed to fund 74%, and the European Commission Humanitarian Office (ECHO) has agreed to provide 94%.

Would you like to know more, or to give directly to these projects?

Speak to Kerry or Will by emailing, or calling 020 7523 2170.


Ghana project

This exciting project in Ghana aims to reach over 8,500 people, who will directly benefit from training and job opportunities.

Over the next three years, the project will look to develop apprenticeships for school leavers, provide vocational skills training for people with disabilities and create opportunities for master craftsmen and artisans to mentor others in developing their trade.
