In Memoriam Giving

Giving in memory of a loved one A special way to honour a loved one when they pass away is by offering friends and family the opportunity to make a donation to the Australasian Leukaemia & Lymphoma Group (ALLG) to celebrate their life, instead of sending flowers. Your gift will be used to help find a cure and improve the quality of life for patients with blood cancers.

By choosing the ALLG as the beneficiary of donations in lieu of flowers you are making a lasting tribute to a loved one and it is a meaningful way to honour them.

Below is some suggested wording to include in the funeral notice, letting your guests know of your wishes.

"In lieu of flowers, donations in memory can be made to the Australasian Leukaemia & Lymphoma Group (ALLG), Ground Floor 35 Elizabeth Street Richmond VIC 3121. Alternatively, donations can be made through the ALLG secure online system http://www.allg.org.au/donate.html. Please include your name and postal address so that ALLG can send you a receipt".

How to arrange a donation to the ALLG in lieu of flowers at a funeral service:

With a little notice, ALLG can provide you with donation envelopes to distribute at the funeral service or wake.

  • Simply contact Dilu Uduwela on +61 3 8373 9702 or email info@allg.org.au. Alternatively, you can ask your funeral director to contact us.
  • We will then express post or courier the envelopes directly to the family, or the funeral home.
  • You can collect the envelopes and send or deliver them to us, or your guests can mail them directly to us.
