We're here with you

We take care of planning, logistics & simplify the technology, so you can be present with family members & friends. Unlike a one-way livestream or webinar, in a GatheringUs virtual memorial all guests can share stories and celebrate together. We're the only company with a Tech Hotline for guests who need help and we do not require a complex guest registration process.

Program 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 guest sharing of memories and stories. We will provide instructions on navigating the technology and 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 sound, video, and lighting to ensure we can hear and see them. For in-person events with virtual guests, we partner with your event coordinator at the funeral home or event venue to connect audiovisual systems, determine the optimal position and settings for cameras/microphones.

Professional Design

Our design team creates an announcement to share with guests, a slide to welcome guests with the program, a photo, and an accompanying custom music playlist, a photo slideshow to play during the event, and a thank you card to send to guests after the event.

Our diverse team brings a wide range of skills in event planning and technology. Our goal is to help you create a unique and meaningful event that upholds traditions and creates new rituals, with easy foolproof technology.

"You made something so painfully impossible possible" - Melissa T.

We LOVED our experience with GatheringUs! The accessibility and ease of communication with our facilitator and other staff was so helpful and reassuring along the way. The format to bring it all together was very well organized and provided flexibility to complete it as time allowed. It definitely exceeded our expectations, as it was so thoughtfully orchestrated and well paced from beginning to the end. What a gift to have the recording and slideshow for the rest of our days! The ability to connect with friends and family all over the globe in this way, was unprecedented!

Armando Sarmiento Dominguez
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.
- Ossman S.
Jim Leusch
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.

Sharon Rollinson
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.
- Joe R.
Eileen Conner
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.

What Families Are Saying

I was consistently impressed with the kindness, consideration, attention to detail and ability to adapt to our needs that you and your entire team displayed. It was a relief to be able to organize this without worrying about the technical solutions, even for a techie like me. It was a load off my mind, and I know it wouldn't have been the same without you.

Peter M.

Your technical team, and its leader, and behind the scenes (tech), did a superb - no - outstanding job today which shows the results of them working closely with me and my moderator to make sure that things went perfectly and they did. She also was very patient with me and my son when we were giving her contradictory signals. She’s a keeper.

John H.

"I was unsure what to expect from a virtual Celebration of Life. What I experienced on Sunday was such an incredible sense of connection and communal celebration of our son. I have had multiple people reach out and express that this was the most affecting and 'connected' experience they had with any memorial."

Dani A.

I have heard only positive feedback from everyone. You are amazing and should be proud of what you’re doing. The amount of stress you help take off us is astonishing and you do it in a patient, kind, friendly way.

Alisa H.

The service was very moving for so many of those who participated or saw the recording at a later date. It was intimate in a way that funeral services aren't. People felt so much a part of the presentations. It allowed family and friends from Europe to California to be there which is not possible in our real world limited by time and cost. I believe it will set a new standard.

David C.

We couldn't have hoped for more.  Somehow you were able to make the service personal, intimate, and accessible to everyone.  It went smoothly from start to finish and you were able to include what was most important to us.

Sam M.

While grieving the loss of my beloved wife, I was overwhelmed with the many things that needed to be done. I didn’t know much about how to organize a real funeral and I had absolutely no idea about a virtual memorial. The feedback I heard is great. You and your team have done an excellent job for our virtual memorial. You’re all very professional and caring.

Keith K.

It was a beautiful service and tribute to our dad. We can't thank you all enough. I had tears again watching the video again, but good tears. I thought the next day would be crippling for me given that it would be our first Father's Day without him, but having the mass and having it well done helped a lot. My heart felt lighter and at peace.

Mary R.

It was so incredibly helpful and healing. Especially for the number of attendees, it was so smooth and allowed us to really focus on what the purpose of the gathering was, rather than the technical details. I want to genuinely thank you for your warm, capable, and attentive support so we could honor (our son) so fully and all together.

Dani A.

"They deal with all the technical details, and much more. They do this all with grace and kindness. This was a paradigm shift for us, but was the best choice. We had over 150 people join in...from airports, Canada, California, work locations and more. It was perfect."
