Give in memory

It’s always sad when we lose someone we love. 

If you have lost someone close to you recently please accept our heartfelt condolences.

Making a gift in their memory can be a powerful way to honour and celebrate their life. You’ll bring hope to our sisters and brothers in need around the world, while allowing the memory of your loved one to live on.

One wonderful supporter, Paul McNulty, made a gift in memory of his late wife Eileen.

My wife Eileen was a SCIAF supporter all her life. As a teacher in Catholic schools she would raise money with her pupils for SCIAF. We took up a collection at our golden wedding celebration as well. It was one of her favourite charities. When Eileen died, I felt making a gift dedicated to her memory was a fitting way to honour the values she held dear.

There are lots of different ways to make an in memory gift. You could take up a collection at the funeral in lieu of flowers, hold an event in your loved one’s memory or simply make a gift in their name whenever the time is right for you.

If you’d like to set up an annual gift to mark important anniversaries or birthdays as a tribute, or would like a supply of Gift Aid envelopes for a collection, please contact us.

The names of all of our supporters who have passed away will be added to our Book of Remembrance and we’ll pray for them at a dedicated Mass held annually in the month of the Holy Souls in November. We’d be delighted to welcome you to this Mass.
