A gift in memory of a loved one, friend or colleague is a very special and meaningful way to commemorate their life by helping support the discovery of new diagnostics, treatments and cures of disease that change and save lives.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to support research into a disease that may be have been important to them, or to broader areas of medical research.
Arranging gifts in memory
To convey your preference for donations in lieu of flowers, we suggest including a message in the funeral notice: “In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Hudson Institute of Medical Research, 27-31 Wright Street, Clayton, VIC, 3168”.
Acknowledging these special gifts
We will send a thank you letter and a tax-deductible receipt to every donation that includes a name and address.
We will also send a card to the family to let them know who has donated in honour of their loved one, but we do not disclose the amount of any donation.
