In Memory

A special way to commemorate the life of a loved one when they pass away is by offering friends and family the opportunity to make a donation to The Alfred rather than give flowers to celebrate their life.  Their gifts will be used to support the vital work of The Alfred.

With a little notice special in memory donation envelopes can be made available at a funeral, wake, church or other commemorative service where people may choose to make a donation.

Most funeral directors will help you collect donations in lieu of flowers by contacting us for a supply of donation envelopes.

To request donation envelopes to be sent out please contact our fundraising department on 03 9076 3222 or email 

Donations over $2 are tax deductible and a tax receipt and thank you letter will be issued for each gift made.

An acknowledgement letter will also be sent to the family that includes the names of those who have made a commemorative donation.
