Crowdfunding for good causes has become an emerging trend in the past few years. If you’re unfamiliar with crowdfunding, it’s when many people donate varying sums of money to a cause in order to reach a goal amount.

 

Oftentimes, families will need financial assistance when it comes to paying for their loved one’s funeral. This is even more prevalent for sudden or tragic deaths. That’s why providing a crowdfunding option on your funeral home’s website is beneficial to you, the families you serve, and your community as a whole.

 

Below are ways crowdfunding for funeral expenses will bring your community together.

 

It Shows Your Client Families People Care

When someone loses a loved one, they often feel isolated by their grief. Oftentimes, people are unsure how to approach or reach out to them. With Tribute Crowdfunding, you give communities the ability to come together and raise money for those in need. For a person who is grieving, knowing that their friends, family, and neighbors came together to help them out is a pretty special feeling during a tough time.

 

Families Can Afford Funeral Services

A funeral service is a time for loved ones of the deceased to come together. It’s a time for everyone to share their condolences, stories of the deceased, emotions, and warm embraces. If a family can’t afford to host the service, they miss out on this.

 

When people come together to pay for this meaningful gathering, they are paying for a chance to properly grieve and begin their healing journey.

 

People Can Share Their Condolences

If you have a Frazer-powered website, crowdfunding is integrated into the social Tribute Walls on your website’s obituaries if your family decides to use the function. Once you activate this function, people have the ability to leave a message with their donation. This is a great way for the family and other community members to be connected and share their condolences and grief. Staying connected helps the family feel a sense of community and support.

 

Families Can Show Their Gratitude

When someone donates to the campaign, they input their address. Families can view the addresses if they want to write thank-you cards when the campaign ends. This takes a lot of stress off of families because they no longer need to hunt down addresses. They want to be able to express their gratitude and this helps them do just that. Also, they already have enough to deal with, so saving them time is always appreciated.
