What is a Tribute Fund?

A Forever by the Sea Tribute Fund is a lovely way for everyone to make a difference in memory of the person you miss dearly, as well as keeping their love of the sea alive. With an online Tribute Fund you can invite family and friends to:

  • Upload photos and videos

  • Leave messages of support and remembrance

  • Share memories and stories about the person the fund is honouring

  • Set up fundraising events and sponsored activities in memory of your loved one

  • Light a candle and mark special dates or anniversaries

  • Give donations in memory
  • Your Forever by the Sea Tribute Fund

    A Forever by the Sea Tribute Fund is a wonderful way for people to come together and celebrate a life. You and your loved ones, friends and family can add messages and poems, photographs and videos, or even set up a fundraising event in their honour.

    In this way you can all share precious personal memories, and keep your loved one forever by the sea. Meanwhile your tribute page can remain available online to whomever you wish, for as long as you wish.

    Celebrate their life and raise money in their memory

    There are endless ways to support the RNLI's lifesaving work, while growing your Tribute Fund - from a film night get together to quizzes, car washes, sporting challenges and cake sales. It all helps to mark your loved one's memory and raise vital funds.

    Your funds in action

    Our volunteer crew members are constantly alert for the moment when their pagers go off and they have rush to the lifeboat station. They have to be fast, because lives are at stake. It's a worrying time for the friends and family our crews, while they watch the heaving waves and stormy skies and hope that the crew come back safely.

    Thanks to your generous support, our lifesavers have the training, equipment and support they need to navigate through ferocious seas, to rescue someone whose life is in danger, and return safely home.
