Dealing with the death of a loved one is never easy. The emotional toll itself can be devastating. Add in the expenses of a funeral, burial or cremation, and the stress caused by a death can be insurmountable. If you need assistance to cover funeral costs as you prepare to say goodbye to a loved one, or know someone who does, starting a memorial fundraiser on Mightycause is the best place to start.
The last thing a grieving family should have to deal with is worrying about how to cover the costs of the funeral. This is no small task, as the average cost of a funeral in recent years is upwards of $7,000. By starting a fundraiser on Mightycause, you can raise money to cover the costs of the funeral and ease the financial burden of the grieving family. And to ensure the money raised is sent directly to family in need, you can even have the funds sent directly to their bank account.
The ultimate way to pay tribute to a loved one is by building upon their legacy. Think about what causes they were passionate about, and consider starting a fundraiser for a nonprofit that supports that cause. By honoring them in this way, you can be sure to continue their life’s work, even after they’re gone. In many instances, memorial fundraisers that honor a loved one are circulated during a funeral, and mourners are asked to contribute to the fundraiser in lieu of flowers.
