Memorial Funds

Create a page

The creation of a Memorial Fund through the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) is a meaningful and lasting way to honor a loved one while helping others. Contributions made to Memorial Funds allow AFSP to continue its mission of saving lives and bringing hope to those affected by suicide.  

No minimum gift is required when establishing a fund. All donations made to a Memorial Fund are used by AFSP within a year of its creation. 

When you establish a Memorial Fund, AFSP provides:

  • The ability to create a personalized webpage allowing you to share your story and more about your loved one, as well as recruit funds from friends and family. Click the Create A Page button above to begin setting up your fund.
  • AFSP staff support. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or need assistance with your fund.
  • A quarterly update listing the fund’s donors (upon request).
  • If your fund reaches $5,000, you will be contacted by AFSP to receive a personalized Memorial Fund plaque.
