Give in memory of someone

Give a gift in memory of a loved one

Remembering someone you cared for by donating to a cause that was dear to them can be a wonderful tribute to them.

When you make a gift in memory of a loved one to SOS Children’s Villages UK you are supporting vulnerable children and families around the world in their honour. Your gift will enable us to provide children with the opportunity to grow up in a supportive family environment with access to quality education and healthcare, protect children in emergency situations, and help prevent family breakdown and child abandonment around the world.

Here are four ways you may wish to donate in memory of a loved one:

Make a donation

To make a donation in memory of your loved one, perhaps on their birthday or a special anniversary please do so on our website or send a cheque to us at:

SOS Children’s Villages UK
Ravenscroft House
59-61 Regent Street

You may wish to set up a regular contribution to our work by making a monthly donation or sponsoring a child or village community on their behalf.

Create a tribute

By creating a tribute page, your family and friends will be able to add their donation and create a lasting tribute together. You can set up your page now using Just Giving and Virgin Money Giving.

Funeral collection

You can request a donation to SOS Children’s Villages UK in lieu of receiving flowers. If so, please send a cheque to us at the address above or donate online. We will acknowledge safe receipt soon after.

Take part in an event

You can get involved with one of our existing events in memory of your loved one or take on your own challenge and we’ll support you throughout. Visit our events page or email us at
