Celebrating Lives Together

Virtual Funeral Events & Online Memorial Pages

See how it works

Uphold traditions and create new rituals

We take care of planning, logistics & simplify the technology, so you can be present and receive support from family & friends. Unlike a one-way livestream, in a GatheringUs virtual event guests can share stories to honor and celebrate your loved one.

Be present in the moment

Our goal is to help you create an inspiring and personal event that meets your vision

  • Planning

    Your dedicated event planner will guide you in creating a custom program that may include speakers, celebrants, clergy, musicians, and singers. We will offer suggestions on how to structure the flow, incorporate personal elements, cultural and family customs, traditions, and religion, and how to connect in-person gatherings with virtual guests.

  • Event Facilitation

    You're not alone. We'll be there to begin the service, guide presenters, play slideshows, videos, music, and facilitate public share of memories and stories. The GatheringUs facilitator will provide instructions on navigating the technology and provide the phone number for the GatheringUs Tech Support Hotline for guests who need help.

  • Technical Support

    We make sure all the speakers can log into the event on Zoom, check their microphone, camera, and lighting to ensure we can hear and see them. We work with you to connect audiovisual systems, determine the optimal position and settings for cameras, microphones. We can work with most hybrid events, and no additional equipment is required.

Connecting Everyone In-Person & Virtually with Easy User-Friendly Technology

Our team brings a wide range of skills in end-of-life and event planning, so we can help you customize your event. We can schedule weekend and evening events and unlimited guests can join from all international locations. Multilingual services available (Spanish, French)

“GatheringUs provided the scaffold to create a poignant event to honor our much-loved aunt. Our planner held my hand while the event crystalized. She was superb. During this pandemic, when everyone has been forced apart, GatheringUs provided an intimate way to bring us together. I am very thankful.”

– Kate H.

Honoring a life together is one of the most meaningful and transformative things we can do. Connecting to our communities helps keep them present with us and ease the loss. Ceremonies, rituals and personal tributes can sustain us while navigating this difficult time.

At GatheringUs, we aim to support and strengthen communities long after the funeral.
