How It Works

Create. Share. Get Support
Create a Memorial
GatheringUs is a lasting online space that brings communities together after a death.

You can post a free obituary, crowdfund for expenses or a charity, create gatherings and inform your community.

And your community can stay informed, share memories, and be there to support you.
