Helping grieving families during their time of need.

Most obituaries include “in lieu of flowers” and is the basis for this donation platform. Sending flowers to a funeral is a long-honored tradition, but today, most families prefer other options to honor the memory of their loved one. InLieuOf.com is a secure donation platform that allows extended family and friends the ability to make online donations and share memories with a family that has experienced the loss of a loved one.

For some families, the unexpected loss of a loved one, creates a financial burden. Monetary donations allow them to have the type of funeral or memorial service they need, to say good bye.

All donations received are collected by the servicing funeral home on behalf of the family.

DONATE NOW

Whether accepting donations to honor a memory or needing financial assistance to either cover the entire cost or to upgrade the quality of the service, this platform is designed for families facing the difficulty of losing a loved one.

"When my father-in-law’s health began to fail, my wife and her mom were just focused on his care. When he passed, we were not prepared to handle the necessary arrangements. You all were a wonderful and amazing blessing. We were able to have the funeral service he would have been very proud of."
