In Memoriam/Tribute Gifts

These days, family and friends often make donations in memory of their loved one, rather than send flowers. These gifts not only honour the life of the person who has died but they also offer practical support to Colac Area Health through your donation to the Foundation.

Memorial or Tribute Gifts are another way in which you and your family can support the Colac Area Health Foundation. To honour the life and memory of a loved one by supporting the Foundation is a wonderful tribute.

Memorial or Tribute Gifts made in memory of a loved one or in recognition of care received, can be nominated for a specific cause or service area within Colac Area Health. In lieu of flowers at the funeral, the family may wish to honour their loved one by requesting donations to Colac Area Health Foundation.

The Foundation works closely with funeral directors in Colac to ensure that collection envelopes are easily accessible, in accordance with the wishes of the families involved.   The Foundation can provide personalised Tribute envelopes to have available at the service.  (Speak with your funeral director for more details).

Following the collection of donations and where details have been provided, all donors will receive a tax receipt and a thank you letter.  The family of the deceased person is provided with a list of donors and the total amount of money that has been gifted to the Foundation in memory of their loved one.  Amounts of individual gifts remain confidential.

If you wish to support the Colac Area Health Foundation by requesting tribute gifts in memory of a loved one, speak to your funeral director who can distribute envelopes or contact the Colac Area Health Foundation for more information.
