In Memory Donation

Donating in memory of a loved one is a very meaningful way to honour their life. Gifts “In Memory” may pay tribute, offer condolences or preserve the memory of treasured family members and friends.

Apart from remembering your loved ones with “In Memory” donations at the time of the funeral, you may also like to remember them on the anniversary of their death, on their birthday, at Christmas or at any other time.

In lieu of flowers

If you would like your friends and family to make a donation in lieu of flowers, we suggest that you include the following wording in the funeral notice:

In lieu of flowers a donation in memory of Name of loved one may be given to the Mackay Hospital Foundation (if you wish you can include area or hospital of choice) PO Box 6011, Mackay Mail Centre, QLD 4741

Mackay Hospital Foundation  “In Memoriam” envelopes are available at the funeral parlours or you can simply direct family and friends to make a donation to the Mackay Hospital Foundation via the funeral notice.

The Foundation will send the next of kin a letter listing the names of those that have made a donation in memory of their loved one, however no individual donation amounts will be provided. You will receive a separate acknowledgement for your thoughtful gift with a receipt for tax purposes (as all donations over $2.00 are tax deductible).

Please call us on 07 4885 5915 to make these arrangements.
