Help and FAQs

Through a Gift of Hope fund page, you and your family and friends can come together to share memories of your loved one and raise money for the BHF.

What is Gift of Hope?

Gift of Hope is an online fundraising space where you, your family and friends can share photos, stories and memories about a loved one while fundraising for the BHF at the same time.

Why create a Gift of Hope fund page?

Losing someone to heart and cardiovascular disease is never easy. And nothing can take away the grief of missing someone you love. But many people find comfort in making a Gift of Hope fund page; helping them through their bereavement.  

How do I get started?

It’s easy to create your own Gift of Hope fund page. Simply create an account and follow the instructions.

Do I need to pay a fee to set up my page?

Your Gift of Hope fund page is free to set up. The money you raise will help fund the BHF's ground breaking research.

Do I need to set a fundraising target?

It’s entirely up to you. Setting a target is optional.

How do I send you offline donations?

When you add an offline donation to your fund you will be given a reference number. Please ensure you quote this number in a covering letter along with your monies. Please send them to:

Gift of Hope
British Heart Foundation
Lyndon Place
2096 Coventry Road
Sheldon
Birmingham, B26 3YU

How much of the money I raise will directly support the British Heart Foundation?

Every penny you donate will directly support the BHF. We have created Gift of Hope so that all gifts go straight to us.

Can I add Gift Aid to the donations?

Yes. Using Gift Aid means that for every £1 you give, we can claim back 25p from HMRC, helping your donation go further. This means that £10 can be turned into £12.50 just so long as donations are made through Gift Aid. Imagine what a difference that could make and it doesn't cost you or the BHF a thing. So if you want your donation to go further, simply tick the Gift Aid box when you make your donation.

Can I add fundraising events to my page?

Yes. Simply click on ‘Create an event in memory’ and follow the step-by-step process.

How do I tell my friends and family about my fund?

You can share your page through our Facebook, Twitter and email links on your fund page.

Can I change my page later?

Once your page has been created you can use the admin area to change your page information, and add photos and videos as often as you like. You can also update your fundraising target and change your password or email address at any time.

What about security?

You will be using a secure connection to create your page and make donations - a password-protected account will be set up for you to make any changes.

Is there someone I can talk to directly?

If you have any questions or want to chat through setting up your page, we can help. Get in touch by emailing heretohelp@bhf.org.uk or calling 0300 330 3322.
