Mike Delaney Memorial Fund
Mike Delaney died on March 30, 2013, as the result of a car accident. This left his wife and three children financially unprepared, so his brother-in-law turned to DonationTo in order to raise money online for funeral expenses. Additionally, part of the $25,000 goal is intended to help the family deal with the rest of their finances for a few months so that his wife is able to take the necessary time to grieve. To date, Mike’s supporters have donated more than $9,100, and there is still plenty of time left for them to hit their goal.

Love of Donna L. Jones Fund
The online fundraising campaign that was set up to assist with the burial expenses for Donna Jones’ funeral was started by two friends of the family. It is their goal to raise $9,500 to help Donna’s children cover the expenses of the memorial service that they held in her honor April 29, 2013. To date, the fundraiser has accumulated more than $5,800, and this has provided Donna’s family with some much-needed financial relief. All of the money that is raised by May 31 will be sent directly to the funeral home that hosted Donna’s memorial service. By using DonationTo the Donna fund keeps 100% of all donations raised and avoids credit card fees.
Turning to DonationTo was an easy decision for the fundraiser’s organizers because it enabled them to gather support from people who did not live in the local area.

Using DonationTo makes it easy for people to donate 24/7 via PayPal or WePay, and the fundraising page for Donna’s family can be accessed from any web enabled device, including iPads, smartphones and laptops.
Mike Cohan-Moore passed away earlier this year, and he was survived by his wife, Shelly, and his parents. In order to help Shelly deal financially with the funeral and the grieving process, her friends and family decided to turn to DonationTo. They have raised more than $1,800 to date, and every penny will be given directly to Shelly so that she can take care of the necessary expenses. Asking people to donate online to this worthy cause is the easiest way to generate support because it provides a centralized location for spreading the word and collecting funds.
One of the best perks of using DonationTo is that all of the donations are made available immediately. In other words, Shelly did not have to wait until the fundraiser ended to receive financial assistance. Instead, each contribution was made available as soon as it was processed, and the fundraiser’s organizers were able to decide when to disburse the funds to Shelly. Additionally, this collaborative effort made it easy for everyone to easily remember the fundraiser’s personalized URL so that they could share it with all of their social networking and email contacts.
