Memorial, Tribute, and Virtual Gifts
A memorial gift in lieu of flowers
Memorial gifts, in lieu of sending flowers to funerals or memorial services, are a wonderful way to pay tribute to the memory of someone you love. These special gifts are also a way for family, friends and colleagues to show that they care.
When planning a funeral, please consider organising memorial gifts to Arthritis Queensland.
It is easy to arrange memorial gifts in memory of your loved one.
Before the funeral
Speak with your funeral director, who will assist you.
Ask for the funeral notice to include: ‘Donations in memory of (name of loved one) may be made to Arthritis Queensland.
The funeral director should have a supply of Arthritis Queensland memorial envelopes, or they can request them from us.
Arthritis Queensland will thank the family by sending a letter that lists the names of everyone who has made a donation in memory of their loved one. For privacy reasons, the individual donation amounts are not disclosed.
Everyone who makes a donation is sent a letter of thanks and a receipt. You can make a donation as a tribute at any time.
For more information or to order in-memoriam donation envelopes please phone 1800 011 041 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You may wish to celebrate a special occasion such as a birthday, anniversary, or wedding with a donation gift registry at Arthritis Queensland.
This can be done by setting up a page online at MyCause, or simply contact Arthritis Queensland on 1800 011 041.
Arthritis Queensland will advise you by letter of the gifts made for your special occasion.
