GatheringUs Events enable the same feel of an in-person experience with real-time participant connections.
We facilitate virtual interaction between all attendees with custom funeral ceremonies, memorials, celebrations of life, homegoings, and wakes.
Our full-service flexible events range from $1,000 to $2,500, and events may be recorded for future viewing.

Wow, this is amazing. What a great idea. As I'm sure you can imagine, we are trying to figure out what's what in this uncertain environment, with a focus on how we can best be there for our families.
I am forever grateful to you for having made possible such a deep experience, one that has helped me achieve greater harmony with the past. Please know how deeply I appreciate all that you have done with your extraordinary work.
Thank you so much for all your help tonight! Your company is amazing! And so caring!
Just a quick thank you for creating and maintaining this important site for families who want to remember their loved ones. Keep up the great work!

Building Community Support
As part of a large family, we faced a lot of deaths over the last decade. The support of our friends and family got us through those difficult days. People who showed up helped us accept the "new normal" and gave us the strength to do the work of grieving and healing.
I realized a lot of people wanted to help, but were too far away and didn't know what to say or do. I created GatheringUs to bring communities together to support each other and celebrate their loved ones. We create virtual funerals and gatherings, tools to share memories and photos, fundraise to help the family with expenses, donate to a nonprofit charity, and send grief support gifts.

Digital "receptions" for more intimate conversations. Participants gather in smaller groups, similar to reception tables in real life — one for high school friends, another for co-workers, or various family branches, etc.
