Donating in memory

We understand losing a loved one is a difficult time, especially in the current climate where meeting to celebrate their lives isn’t always possible.

Should you be arranging a collection in celebration, it may be helpful for you to set up an online giving platform which is an easy way to for supporters to donate. You can do this via JustGiving, simply search for The Gurkha Welfare Trust in the list of charities.

While not the same as meeting friends and family in person, your online page allows photos and stories to be shared, and gifts in memory to be collated. It also enables us to acknowledge the generous gift sent to celebrate your loved one in support of our Gurkha veterans and their communities.

It is also possible to pay in collections via our website, and for funeral directors to request to transfer the monies via direct transfer. For more information, please contact:

Why leave a donation in memory?

By making a donation in memory of a loved one, you’ll be helping us to provide financial aid to Gurkha veterans through Welfare Pensions, to care for the vulnerable and to provide emergency relief in times of disaster and extreme hardship. Your support is crucial in enabling us to continue our work in years to come.
