Donate in memory

When we lose a loved one, it can be helpful to remember them in a meaningful way.

A gift given in their memory can often help to bring consolation at a time of grief. Your gift can help the memory of a friend or relative live on by funding the Museum’s work.

Tribute funds

A British Museum tribute fund is a lasting way to remember someone special. The tribute fund is named after the person who has died and becomes a permanent memorial to them.

Friends and family can contribute to the fund as they wish, and the funds from it will be used to support the important on-going work of the British Museum.

Please ensure you have permission from the next of kin before setting up a tribute fund or tribute fund webpage. Tribute funds are currently available in the UK only.

To set up a tribute fund you must be over 18 years old.
