Our In Their Name Funds are a place where families can come together to support and honour a child or young person who has been affected by cancer. By setting up your own personalised fund you will be able to raise money to support other young people and families facing cancer, all in the name of your superstar.
"The fund gave Daniel a focus and motivated him to keep going, even in the dark days when he wasn't well. He could see what family and friends were doing to support him and in doing so raising money for Young Lives vs Cancer to support other children and families going through similar journeys, knowing first-hand how important the charity is." Alison, Mum of Daniel
Through your fund page your amazing community of family, friends and community can leave messages of support, share a memory, donate money directly or create their own online fundraising page to contribute towards the fund’s total. All the donations received through the fund page will be kept together as a collective total.
With the support of your local Young Lives vs Cancer Fundraising Engagement Manager you can build your personalised fund to really reflect the young person it is named after and fundraise in whichever way best suits you and your community. There is no set fundraising target, every penny and pound raised in their name will go towards helping families find the strength to face everything cancer throws at them.
