Golden Oak Tribute Funds
To open an Acorns Golden Oak Tribute Fund as a lasting reminder of
your loved one, then please visit our Much Loved webpage.
Golden Oak Tribute Funds can be opened in remembrance of someone you love.
When your Fund reaches £250 you will be sent an oak tree sapling to plant where you wish as a lasting reminder of your loved one.
We will also send you a pack, welcoming you to our Tribute Fund family of supporters, including ideas about how to grow your fund, together with tips about how to spread the word to your friends and family.
We will send you regular updates of the progress of your Fund and our news.
Display your loved ones’ tribute in our special online Tribute Garden along with other Acorns Children's Hospice Trust Tribute Fund pages if you wish.
"Our Dad was a dedicated volunteer and fundraiser for Acorns at Selly Oak and our mum still is. Acorns meant so much to our Dad and he enjoyed contributing to Acorn's great work. Setting up the Golden Oak fund in his memory, and watching it grow by fundraising and donating at special times such as Dad's birthday, Christmas and Fathers Day has given our family comfort. It helps to feel that in our small way, we are carrying on Dad's good work for Acorns."

Growing your Tribute Fund
Acorns Tribute Funds give you the choice to grow your fund how you wish and anyone can contribute. You can use your Fund to:
- Invite donations in lieu of funeral flowers - If your loved one has died recently, you might like to use your Fund to invite donations in place of funeral flowers. You will be able to share the link to the Fund with friends and relatives and they will be able to make online donations and leave special messages in memory. You can also add in any money collected on the day or in the run up to the funeral as an "off-line" donation so that the amount is counted in the total raised by the Fund
- Encourage friends and family to donate and leave messages on special anniversaries
- Organise your own fundraising event, or a series of events, or take part in an Acorns event. You can create a dedicated page for each event to collect donations which you can share with family, friends and work colleagues
You can also add in any cash that you raise as an offline donation so that it counts towards your Acorns Tribute Fund total.
For more information about how to donate in memory please contact Janine Miller on 01564 825017 or firstname.lastname@example.org
