Closer to a cure tribute fund

Sometimes you might want to do something really special to remember someone you love. It could be giving a gift on a special date, donating money raised at a family gathering, running a race or climbing a mountain.

If this is something you’d like to do, we can help by setting up an Versus Arthritis Research UK Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund in honour of your loved one.

How do I create a Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund?

You can choose to set up your online Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund through our partner, Muchloved. This unique site lets you share memories, stories, photographs, videos and music with family and friends, and donations to your fund can be made online. It’s simple and easy to do.

Alternatively, please call us on 0300 7900444 and we can set up your Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund directly with us. We'll send you updates every six months so you can track the impact your tribute fund is making for people with arthritis.

How can my Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund help Versus Arthritis?

If you set up an online Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund, you can choose to enable donations to Versus Arthritis. You can make gifts into your fund whenever it feels right – perhaps to mark a birthday or anniversary. And friends and family can give gifts in memory too, or perhaps take part in a sponsored event in tribute.

If you've set up your Closer to a Cure Tribute Fund directly with the charity, you can complete our in memory giving form (PDF, 172 KB) to add to your fund. Once you've completed your form, send it back to us at:

Your support and fundraising efforts are invaluable to us. Every pound you raise in memory of your loved one will fund life-transforming research across the UK, to stop arthritis from stealing the quality of people’s lives forever.

If you have any questions or need any help, please call us on 0300 7900444 or email tribute@versusarthritis.org. Thank you.
