What Is Funeral Crowdfunding?

If you have ever planned a funeral service, you would know exactly how costly it can be to organize everything correctly. Depending on the types of services you opt for, the decorations and other aspects, a funeral can easily cost anything between $7,000 and $10,000. Sometimes, the cost can be outside this range as well.

It isn't uncommon for funeral service expenses to come right after high expenditure on illnesses and medical emergencies. In such situations, some families can find it extremely difficult to rustle up the money required to organize an elegant and sophisticated funeral service for their loved one. One of the best ways to make sure that you can plan everything well is to opt for funeral crowdfunding.

What Is Funeral Crowdfunding?

  • Crowdsourcing or crowdfunding is the method used for raising money and requesting donations from the general public.
     
  • Many people are under the impression that crowdfunding has to be conducted online. While this is a convenient method and has a broader reach, you can also do crowdfunding via word-of-mouth and different people can make donations or payments for the funeral service that you are planning to organize.
     
  • If you look online, you will find that there are certain websites which have been specifically set up for this purpose. They deal exclusively with funeral and memorial services. However, you can also visit other sites and set up your crowdsourcing campaign.
     
  • You will have to register with the site, design the campaign and then upload the relevant photographs. Details such as the goal and timeframe for the campaign are the other things you would have to mention. You would also have to add your bank account details so that you can receive the donations.

Contact us at Tindall Funeral Home through our online form or call (315) 468-5521 if you want to know about our funeral services and need advice on different services.
