In-memory giving

Donating to Foothold is a special way to honour someone's memory whilst supporting the engineering community they were a part of

We understand how difficult it can be after losing someone close to you. By giving a gift to Foothold in memory of someone special, you can support the engineering community that was so important to them.

Without Foothold – and most importantly without supporters such as you and the person you’re remembering – many people would be left to face life’s challenges alone. Your donations will help to ensure that we can be there for engineers and their families for generations to come. We are so very grateful for your support.

There are a number of ways you can donate in memory of a family member or friend:

We understand that losing someone you care about can be an incredibly difficult thing to go through. Remember, Foothold is still here for you. Our support extends to IET member’s partners and dependents.
