Charities in the UK receive between £1.8bn and £2.4bn a year through in-memory fundraising, according to new research by Legacy Foresight.

The In-Memory Insight – Remembering Together report shows that the in-memory giving market has grown “significantly” over the past decade and is “a lot larger than charities appear to be recording”.

Legacy Foresight looked at the size, shape and scope of in-memory giving in the UK, collecting data from activities of more than 2,000 members of the UK public and a “learning circle” of 48 leading British charities.  The report finds that group in-memory fundraising, when three or more people fundraise in memory of someone they have lost, is on the rise, totalling 41% of in-memory income.
