Donations and Pledges
When a loved one has passed away, some families request donations to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute in lieu of floral tributes from family and friends. The request can be made in the funeral notice, or directly by the family.
Once this decision has been made either you or the Funeral Home can contact the Institute (1300 VICTOR) to request In-Memory envelopes. These are readily available and will be sent immediately upon request so they can be distributed at the service.
In appreciation of these donations, we will send the next-of-kin a thank you letter that includes the names of the people who made the donation in memory of their loved one. We will also send an A4 gold embossed certificate acknowledging the donations made in loving memory.
We hope this small token of our appreciation will help keep the memory of your loved one alive.
When making the donation, whether it be by envelope or telephone, please ensure you provide the following information:
♥ Name of person making the donation
♥ Name and address of the next-of-kin
Please go to our donation page for details of how you can make your In-Memory Donation.
In-Memory notice to Friends and Family
The simplest way to advise family and friends that you’re planning an In-Memory Donation to the Victor Chang Institute is to include the following wording in your funeral notice:
“In lieu of flowers, please make a donation in memory of …………………… to the Victor Chang Cardiac Research Institute, PO Box 699, Darlinghurst, NSW, 2010.”
If we can be of further assistance, please call our Fund Development Office on 1300 VICTOR (1300 842 867).
Not everyone can simply give cash, however many supporters of the Institute are able to offer time, services or goods as an in-kind donation. We value and accept these donations with gratitude.
If you have an in-kind donation to offer, please call our Fund Development Office on 1300 VICTOR (1300 842 867).
