A Gift to Remember
A donation to the Cancer Society can be given as a gift in memoriam, in honour and in celebration.
A gift in memoriam
Remember someone close to you by making a donation in their memory. At times of bereavement making a donation to the Cancer Society is a valuable and fitting tribute to the memory of someone important to you. This is a positive way to celebrate the life of a loved one, whilst helping the Cancer Society make a difference for the future.
A gift in honour of someone living with cancer
You may know someone who has just been diagnosed with cancer, or who has been going through treatment. Let someone you care about know that you have made a gift of a donation in their honour.
A donation in honour can also be a very tangible and caring way to offer support to someone when it might not be suitable to send flowers or post a card.
Provide us with the recipient's phone number, email address, or postal address and we'll contact them to say they are being acknowledged. They will receive a card we'll send ‘from you' with thanks from us. You will also receive an acknowledgement from us.
A gift in celebration
Giving in celebration is a positive way of celebrating a special occasion while supporting the Cancer Society's work. Either instead of, or as well as a traditional gift list, invite family and friends to make a donation to the Cancer Society to help you celebrate. For example, in lieu of gifts at a wedding, a couple asked for donations to be given to the Cancer Society and each guest was honoured with a card.
In lieu of giving guests thank you cards or ‘favours' you could let them know you are making a donation to the Cancer Society to thank them, knowing that you are celebrating your good fortune and helping others at the same time.
In all cases, the person requesting the donation and the recipient and the family that it honours will receive acknowledgement and thanks.
