In Memoriam

An in memoriam donation made to the Encephalitis Society is a meaningful way to pay tribute to the memory of friends, family members, a loved one or colleagues who have passed away.

Rather than sending flowers, people often choose to make a donation to a charity as a permanent way to pay tribute to and celebrate a life well lived. Family and friends appreciate knowing a lasting legacy has been created in honour of the deceased.

In memoriam donations are put towards the Encephalitis Society’s ongoing work to improve the quality of life for people with Encephalitis and to encourage research into the condition and its consequences.

Gifts to the Encephalitis Society in memory of a loved one can be be arranged in several ways:

  • through your funeral director.
  • you can send donations directly to us at the address detailed below (please provide the full name of your loved one and the date of death if possible). We will also send a thank you note and a hand written card.
  • you can use our easy to use online form to make your donation (please specify the reason for the donation). 
  • Or you can make a donation in memory of a loved one by going to our In Memoriam page at

Please send your cheques, payable to Encephalitis Society, to: In Memory The Encephalitis Society 32 Castlegate Malton North Yorkshire YO17 7DT, United Kingdom.

Under the new Gift Aid rules to reclaim tax at the basic rate from donations by UK tax-payers we would be grateful if UK donors would accompany their gift with a statement giving their name and home address and indicating their willingness for tax to be reclaimed, preferably by using the Donation Form for UK Taxpayers. Higher-rate tax-payers may claim higher-rate relief on Gift Aid donations by completing the appropriate section of their Self-Assessment return.
