    Thanks to the GatheringUs team for giving my family the chance to honor my father under such difficult circumstances, and both in Spanish and English. We didn't know how much we needed to be together to honor him, and GatheringUs gave us the perfect way.

    They provided creative, artistic, and professional support which empowered us tell the story of his amazing and very full life. And by having the service remotely, friends and family were able to attend, where travel even in good times, would not have been possible.

    GatheringUs helped us build a master to-do list and gave us suggestions for timelines and was a gentle organizer that helped with so many details for our event. We were so happy with how everything turned out and everyone said it was super special.

    From creating a pitch perfect slideshow to ensuring the tech went smoothly for even the most Zoom-phobic guests, the team made sure I didn't need to worry about the logistics of our virtual memorial. They mixed music, speeches, prayers and even a special "Grandma Game Show" hosted by my young kids for an audience that spanned over a dozen states.

“You made something so painfully impossible possible”

    Planning

    Your dedicated event planner will guide you in creating a custom program that may include speakers, celebrants, clergy, musicians, and singers. We will offer suggestions on how to structure the flow, incorporate personal elements, cultural and family customs, traditions, and religion, and how to connect in-person gatherings with virtual guests.

    Event Facilitation

    You're not alone. We'll be there to begin the service, guide presenters, play slideshows, videos, music, and facilitate public share of memories and stories. The GatheringUs facilitator will provide instructions on navigating the technology and provide the phone number for the GatheringUs Tech Support Hotline for guests who need help.

    Technical Support

    We make sure all the speakers can log into the event on Zoom, check their microphone, camera, and lighting to ensure we can hear and see them. We work with you to connect audiovisual systems, determine the optimal position and settings for cameras, microphones. We can work with most hybrid events, and no additional equipment is required.

Connecting Everyone In-Person & Virtually with Easy User-Friendly Technology

Our team brings a wide range of skills in end-of-life and event planning, so we can help you customize your event. We host bilingual events in Spanish and French, simultaneous close caption translation, and unlimited guests can join from all international locations.

“GatheringUs provided the scaffold to create a poignant event to honor our much-loved aunt. Our planner held my hand while the event crystalized. She was superb. During this pandemic, when everyone has been forced apart, GatheringUs provided an intimate way to bring us together. I am very thankful.”

– Kate H.

Honoring a life together is one of the most meaningful and transformative things we can do. Connecting to our communities on memorial sites helps keep them present with us and ease the loss. Ceremonies, rituals, and personal tributes posted on online memorial websites can sustain us while navigating this difficult time.

At GatheringUs we aim to support and strengthen communities long after the online memorial service.
