In Memory Gifts and Memoriam Funds

Remember a Loved One Who Loved Durham

Making a donation to a cause or institution in memory of a loved one can mean a great deal. Such gifts acknowledge the significance of something they considered important in their life, or in other instances, it offers the hope of a tangibly positive outcome in the trauma of bereavement. 

A gift could be a single donation made in their memory, or a fund could be established in your loved one’s name to enable friends and relations to donate in lieu of flowers. Another option to consider would be a named fund which could receive an ongoing dedication to support a particular college, department, scholarship, or service within the University.

If you would like to remember a loved one by donating to Durham University, please contact Louise McLaren, Legacies Officer, direct and in strict confidence, on +44 (0) 191 334 6313, or email
