Online Obituary Services Site Connects Users to NHF

A new partnership between the National Hospice Foundation and Tributes.com provides a simple way for family members to direct memorial donations to NHF.

Tributes.com is an online source for current local and national obituary news and a supportive community where family and friends can come together during times of loss and grieving to honor the memories of their loved ones with lasting personal tributes. The site has a database of over 95 million records dating back to 1936 and documents more than 80 percent of the deaths in the U.S. each year.

Visitors to Tributes.com can find an obituary or create a tribute to a loved one that allows the circle of grievers to post written comments, audio messages, and photos. In addition, Tributes.com provides recommended articles and books related to grief recovery along with links to vendors offering sympathy floral and gift delivery services.

”As the number of individuals that require hospice care at their end-of-life approaches 50 percent, the need for an organization like NHF that is laser-focused on continuing to evolve the quality of that care is critically important,” said Elaine Haney, CEO and president of Tributes.com. “We are very much honored to be in a position to promote the work of the NHF and to help stimulate memorial giving through our platform.”

When creating an obituary, a consumer or funeral home may select from a list of charitable organizations to which contributions can be made. NHF was recently added to this list of organizations as a featured partner and when selected the NHF logo and a Make a Donation link are included in the obituary.

Close to four million unique consumers and thousands of funeral homes use the site each month to locate and publish obituaries. As a result, the partnership creates a tremendous opportunity for consumers to support hospice care in memory of a loved one.

“Collaborating with Tributes.com makes so much sense. Memorial donations are a vitally important component of the funds we raise at NHF, which are used to support the care that makes such a difference in the end-of-life experience for family members and loved ones,” said John Mastrojohn, executive director of NHF.

There are so many reasons why death care companies need to get their heads out of the sand and start engaging on the platforms used by over 68% of all Americans.

These six people had funerals on their mind for one reason or another and decided to share with the Twitter world what they were thinking, and I’m pretty glad they did. People can come up with some pretty crazy things if you let them ramble.
