Give in memory.

It is often hard to know how best to commemorate a lost loved one.

Making a donation to the Queensland Eye Institute Foundation in memory is a positive and lasting way of celebrating a life while helping to save sight of many more through medical research. If you have lost someone who is close to you and you would like to make a difference in their name, there are several ways you can. 

Make a single donation now

If you would like to make a single donation now in memory of a loved one, you can select this option on our online donation page.

Organising a collection at a funeral

We understand losing a loved one is a difficult time for all families and their friends and we are very mindful of this when assisting with a funeral collection. We can provide in-memory donation envelopes to make the collection easier. Simply contact us here at the Queensland Eye Institute Foundation on 07 3239 5050 and we can send out specially marked envelopes to the Funeral Director so that attendees can make an offering in the name of the loved ones passed. In memoriam donations are fitting ways to honour the memory of a friend or a loved one.

All gifts are acknowledged and tax deductible receipts for donations over $2 are sent directly to the donor if they fill out their details on the envelope. 

Requesting donations instead of flowers

If you would like people to make a donation to the Queensland Eye Institute Foundation instead of flowers we suggest you make an announcement in the death notice. For example: 'Donations in lieu of flowers to Queensland Eye Institute Foundation would be appreciated.'

Creating an online memorial page

Create a webpage featuring a picture and memories of your loved one, where family and friends can visit, leave their own tribute messages and donate online. Your tribute page is a dedicated place where friends and family can connect, share memories, or make a donation in memory of your loved one. It is often used in addition to in-memory donation envelopes at the funeral. You can build your In Memory Page and share it with your friends and family, who may also like to contribute and provide support. Each donation is recorded on your page along with any messages of support from your friends and family.
