Giving can be healing. Giving in lieu of gifts is a wonderful way to commemorate a special occasion. There is no better way to celebrate life and say happy anniversary, congratulations, happy birthday, mazel tov or best wishes than with a gift that could save lives.
By asking family and friends to make a donation to The Alfred instead of receiving gifts for yourself, you will be helping thousands of Victorians receive the best medical care available.
Setting up an online in celebration giving page
With our online giving partner GoFundraise you can create your own in celebration giving page. Simply choose your celebration; it could be anything; a birthday, an anniversary or a wedding.
You can set up your online giving page here and personalise it with photos and details of the occasion. You will be emailed a personalised URL which you can include on invitations, share on social media or forward in an email inviting your family and friends to make a donation to The Alfred instead of giving you a gift. They then make a secure online gift.
Any donation over $2 is eligible for a tax deductible receipt. You’ll also be notified when they make a donation so you can send your own thank you.
In celebration envelopes
If you prefer, we can send you some of our beautifully designed in celebration donation envelopes. These can be personalised and give you the option to make a donation by cheque, money order or credit card. They are also a reply paid envelope so your family member or friend can simply fill out their details, seal the envelope and put it in any post box.
Anyone who makes a donation over $2 through the in celebration envelopes will receive a tax deductible receipt and thank you letter from The Alfred. We will also send you a thank you letter with the total amount raised and a list of people who donated, should you wish to thank them personally.
Donations in lieu of wedding bonbonnieres
Give your wedding guests a unique and meaningful thank you gift, by donating the money you would have spent on wedding bonbonnieres to The Alfred.
Wedding donations on your special day can contribute towards a healthier future for others. All funds received by The Alfred in celebration of your wedding will help provide the Victorian community with the very best treatment and care available.
To help you celebrate good health and happiness we can provide you with special thank you cards to give your guests.
