Gift of Hope funds

Roses and message - British Heart FoundationGift of Hope funds are a unique and positive way of celebrating a life while supporting our pioneering research and patient care.

Gifts of Hope funds are a simple and meaningful way to help our work now and as far in to the future as you wish.

You can contribute to your Gift of Hope fund in any way, such as a regular gift on a birthday or anniversary or a fundraising event.


Give the Gift of Hope

I can help others who have gone through the pain, suffering and anguish of waiting for surgery

Harvey Levene set up a lasting tribute to Alan Wood eight years ago. 

"The idea of being able to help others avoid the pain makes it worthwhile, and keeps the memory of Alan alive."

Set up a new fund

Choose the Gift of Hope option on the homepage and you can set up a fund, with a photo and your own words. You’ll need to register, but if you already have a log in for the main BHF website you can use the same details. Sharing your page with family and friends is simple via email, facebook and Twitter, making it easy to fundraise and share your memories.

Our Gift of Hope website has a host of improved features such as a diary, photo and video album and a visitors’ book. Please take a look and start celebrating the life of your loved one.


However you choose to contribute, you can be assured that your Gift of Hope fund will help us keep thousands of vulnerable hearts beating.
