Go Fund Me Funerals

Paul Emile Trudelle Estate & Trust, Estate Planning, General Interest, Hull on Estates Tags: , , 0 Comments

Funerals can be expensive. Coming up with the money required for a proper disposition of remains can be difficult for many.

One option that is available to assist in paying funeral expenses is crowdfunding.

A recent search of “funeral” on  gofundme.com revealed 1,759,748 results. According to the gofundme.com website, over 125,000 memorial campaigns were commenced per year, and over $400m was raised per year. Click here for a link to the gofundme.com funeral fundraising information page.

An article on funeraldirect.co on crowdfunding for funerals gives tips on how to mount a successful crowdfunding for funeral expenses campaign. Tips include:

  • Use bright images or videos;
  • Use descriptive and catchy titles;
  • Spread the word using other social media, such as Facebook and Twitter;
  • Share the link directly to friends and family;
  • Keep supporters updated on the progress of the campaign;
  • Make it clear how the donations are to be used; and
  • Thank contributors for their support.

With respect to how the funds can be used, see an excellent blog from Suzana Popovic-Montag, Does Crowdfunding Establish a Trust?

Have a great weekend.
