Donate in memory

Make a heartfelt gift today

Giving in honour or memory of a loved one can be a powerful and lasting way to celebrate their life — while contributing to medical research.

Whether you choose to donate in lieu of flowers at the funeral or wake, or set up a tribute page in honour, you're making a positive contribution to a future where we can predict and prevent disease.

In lieu of giving flowers at a funeral, you may opt to collect donations for Garvan's medical research.

We can send you a pack consisting of donation envelopes that can be placed at the funeral. 

To request a donation pack, please call (02) 9295 8110 or 1300 73 66 77 (Mon-Fri 8am-5pm) or use the form below. You will receive a confirmation email. 

Please allow 2-3 days for delivery. We endeavour to dispatch these packs as quickly as possible.

Return the envelopes to us at:

Julie-Anne’s sister Kerryn passed away from pancreatic cancer at age 44. She was determined to make sure other families wouldn’t have to suffer in the same way, and decided to raise money for medical research. Her goal was to raise $10,000 for Garvan with an online tribute page in Kerryn’s memory.

Kerryn’s family and friends have now raised over $11,000 — which will make a difference for people facing this terrible disease. (Right: Kerryn with her husband Matthew)
