Giving in memory is a unique way to show support to a family who has lost someone special.

Individual collection envelopes are available year round for donations collected at funerals or memorial services 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 their next of kin of your gift and send you a receipt.

When making an online donation, please chose the “In Memoriam” option in the “Why are you donating?” drop down box as this will allow you to then include the full name of the deceased. 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 obituary or other tribute:

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation Inc (OCRF) would be greatly appreciated. Please visit for online donations. Alternatively, donation envelopes will be available at the service.
