In 2016, myTribute was founded with the goal of making the memorial, funeral, and afterlife services industry better and to make a positive impact in people's lives. By modernizing and combining online memorials with crowdfunding for funeral costs together on one site, we allow people to focus on what matters the most - the grieving process, healing, and getting better emotionally. Ideally with our tributes, people can spend more time honoring and celebrating the life and legacy of a loved one and focus less on memorial expenses and funeral costs.
In the spring of 2015, we lost a loved one to a very unexpected passing. At the time, no existing tributes or online memorials offered the combination of a timeless, yet modern virtual memorial with integrated crowdfunding tools to raise money for funeral costs (as an option) on one cohesive site. The only way to accomplish this was to create different accounts on outdated, paid online memorials and utilizing generic crowdfunding sites. Nothing was made easy for us, designs were below average, and what we really needed was scattered across different sites.
Building a Unified and Better Online Memorial
In today's world, creating an online memorial or tribute cost money, doesn't look good, and the user experience is below average. Plus, if you need help financially, using a generic crowdfunding site to raise money for funeral costs is very impersonal, is time consuming, and is usually difficult to use and to share. Ideally, everything involved should be easy-to-use and together on one site to save you time and effort while maximizing results.
Our free online memorials are modern obituaries and digital tombstones that capture all the great stories, everlasting moments, and memorialize experiences forever. Instead of having memories, photographs, and stories scattered across various obituaries, social networking sites, photo-sharing services, emails, letters, etc., myTribute brings it all together to be viewed and shared as one central, cohesive experience within each memorial.
Every myTribute memorial has integrated crowdfunding for funeral costs (as an option) and social sharing tools to increase the success rate of all funeral fundraising campaigns. By easily connecting directly with family and friends, we are empowering everyone to make a positive impact by sharing, helping, and supporting in all possible ways.
