In memory

Fundraising in memory of a loved one is a touching way to make a lasting and meaningful impact in their name. If any of our causes were close to the heart of your loved one, there are many ways you can support us:

Create a tribute fund in their name

You can then share the page with friends and family. You can set up an online donation page and share the link with anyone who is unable to attend the service. You can include a photograph of your loved one and some words about their life.. Family and friends can leave messages of support and automatically receive a tax-deductible receipt.

 

Organise a collection at a funeral service

If you're arranging a funeral or memorial service you may also like to ask family and friends to make a gift to Uniting in memory of your loved one or instead of flowers. We can post donation forms and envelopes for you to distribute at the service. To request donation envelopes, you can contact us on 1800 060 543 or fundraising@vt.uniting.org. Once all of the donations are received, we will send an acknowledgement letter to the next of kin, listing the names of those who have made a gift. Each person who makes a donation will receive a tax-deductable receipt.

Host an activity that your loved one enjoyed

You can host an event themed around one of your loved one’s favourite activities, whether it be a golf day, games night or an afternoon tea to gather your family and friends together and celebrate the memory of your loved one.

Make a donation in their memory

You can make a gift in memory at any time to celebrate the life of your loved one. You may choose to make a donation on a significant day each year, or make a one-off donation.
