What is a Meningitis Now Forever Fund?

Our Forever Funds are a unique and lasting way to remember someone special. A Forever Fund named after a person who has died becomes a permanent memorial to them and the money raised through the Fund in their memory helps us make a difference to others whose lives have been affected by meningitis.

Create a Forever Fund

As your own special tribute, this online page can become a place of comfort to visit any time or place, in order to help you remember and reflect. You can do many things including posting stories, favourite pictures and memories, or lighting a candle. As everything is stored centrally everyone can access at any time.

How Forever Funds help support Meningitis Now’s work

Our vision is a future where no one in the UK loses their life to meningitis and everyone affected gets the support they need to rebuild their lives.

The money raised through Forever Funds helps us to:
