How can I guarantee my donation is going to a valid charity or funeral service?

Although we monitor Memorials, GatheringUs does not guarantee the authenticity of a Memorial. If you do not know the organizer and can not verify their identity, do not make personal donations to that Memorial. Charitable donations are sent directly to the charity through Pledgeling our online charitable partner.  If you believe that a Memorial is misleading or fraudulent, let our team know by reporting it here.
