Our son Matthew was such a special person. We felt that opening a Tulip Fund in his name was a perfect way to help keep his memory alive and, at the same time, support Dorothy House.Gillian & Anthony Nash
Dorothy House Tulip Funds have been in existence for 15 years and in that time donations to Tulip Funds have helped provide vital care directly to our community when it is needed most – a true legacy.
We are now working with MuchLoved to expand our Tulip Funds online to offer the ability to create a personal online space to help people celebrate and remember a loved one in their own way.
There are two ways to set up a Fund – online and offline
An online Tulip Fund is your own special tribute to a loved one, a space to share memories, thoughts and stories with family and friends as well as light candles, add music, photos and videos. Your fund can help you fundraise or it can be a simple page to share thoughts and memories. This is your space to use as you wish, it can be public or private it is up to you. The additional online features mean Tulip Fund holders, their friends and family will be able to visit an online Tulip Fund to donate and share memories at any time.
You can read David’s story here as he shares about the Fund he set up in memory of his wife, Sue. If you’re ready to set up a Tulip Fund today, here’s how:
- Download and print the form here
- Once you’ve completed the form, post it back to us
- When we receive your form, we’ll send you a confirmation letter
- Then every year, on the anniversary of the start date of your Fund, we’ll post a certificate to you so you can see how your Fund is growing
If you already have an existing Tulip Fund and would like to set up a new online page then you are of course welcome to do so. Once you have set up your online Tulip Fund please let a member of our Supporter Care Team know: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can help add your offline total to your new online Tulip Fund page.
If you have any further questions we are always here to help so please do not hesitate to contact us at any time. If you feel you would like to talk to someone about your bereavement or would like further information about support available, please contact our Family Support Team on: 0345 0130 555
We hope you, your family and your friends find this a special place to come together and celebrate the life of a loved one.
