Memorial giving

Celebrate the life of someone you love by giving to the Heart Foundation in their memory

This gift is a thoughtful way to pay tribute to the life of a friend or family member, and give health and life to others.

How we remember your loved one

When you give a gift in memory of someone, we add the name of the person you’re honoring in our Book of Remembrance, which we keep permanently and that we welcome you to visit.

If you are donating to a friend who has lost a loved one we write a condolence letter to their family, and let them know you’ve kindly made this gift (we don’t tell them the amount). You can also set up a personlised tribute page which you can share with friends and family. 

Ways you make a donation in memory

Collect gifts at funerals

If you’d like people to give memorial donations at a loved one’s funeral or commemoration service, talk to your funeral director. Most can provide Heart Foundation envelopes or another collection facility. Alternatively, please contact us on 1300 550 282 to request memorial envelopes to be sent out.
