We have so many wonderful occasions for celebration – births, birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, and more, why not consider asking guests to make a donation to ovarian cancer research in lieu of a gift?

That is one way to play a pivotal role in creating futures with less to fear.

Individual collection envelopes are available year round for donations collected at special celebratory occasions in lieu of a gift or flowers. Simply contact our office on (03) 9296 2040 with your postal address and the number of envelopes required so we can mail them to you directly.

Please include as much information as possible on the donation envelope so, where requested, we are able to notify the host of your gift and send you a receipt.

When making an online donation, please chose the “In Celebration” option from the “Why are you donating?” drop down box as your reason for giving as this will allow you to then include the full name of the person celebrating. You will receive an immediate tax receipt via e-mail for all online donations that is fully tax-deductible for all donations of $2 or more.

Suggested wording for inclusion in an invitation for a special occasion (if you prefer not to include donation envelopes with your invitation):

In lieu of a gift on my special day, donations to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation Inc (OCRF) would be greatly appreciated. Please visit www.ocrf.com.au for online donations. Alternatively, donation envelopes will be available at the event.
