How much does it cost to create a Blue Star Tribute?
We are honored to play a small role in celebrating the legacy of your loved one, and, as such, there are no fees associated with creating a tribute in their honor or memory.
How long will my tribute page be active?
Your tribute page will be on our platform indefinitely or until the fundraiser chooses to deactivate them or the organization chooses to deactivate it. While the page will remain on the site, a fundraiser end date is required when setting up a page. Our recommendation is to set the end date far into the future, at least one year, and update the date as necessary in order for donations to be made.
Will I be able to create a link for my obituary?
Of course. All tribute pages allow you to create a custom URL link that can be added to obituaries.
Is my website a public link?
The setting for all tribute pages is public.
How can I edit the content on my tribute page?
Once logged in, you will go to the upper righthand corner of the page and select the dropdown menu “Go to” and select your page. Once on your page, go to “Manage” and you will be redirected to your page’s dashboard. Here you can select any of the tabs and edit as needed. Make sure to hit save after each change.
How do you use the funds that are raised through Blue Star Tributes?
All funds raised through Tributes will help further our mission to end this disease in our lifetime. Our priorities include funding life-saving research, including young-onset research; increasing our efforts in screening and prevention; and supporting patients and their families as they navigate colorectal cancer.
