Urgency 

When planning a funeral, it can come as a surprise to realize that you are unprepared for all of the costs that come along with planning the service. While it can be upsetting to realize that you can't pay for the funeral yourself, there is nothing wrong with reaching out for help whenever you need it. In your time of need, we are sure that your friends and family will completely understand if you need some support during this difficult moment in your life. One way in which you can reach out for help for paying for a funeral service is by asking for donations. When asking for donations, it could be a good idea to create a sense of urgency so that your friends and family understand just how dire the situation is. We recommend letting them know when you need the money by and when you are planning for the funeral to be held. By creating a sense of urgency, you will be taking a proactive approach and encouraging your friends and family members to jump into action to support you in honoring your loved one. 

Break Down Costs 

Many people are initially hesitant to donate to something without fully understanding where their money is going. Due to this, we recommend spending some time to breakdown all of the costs of your loved one’s funeral service so that when your friends and family donate, they can clearly see and understand where their money is going. Additionally, it could be a good idea to let individual donors know where their money is going as soon as they donate to you. By keeping everyone in the loop about how they are helping you, more people will be inclined to offer support during this difficult moment in your life.
