Making a donation to the Southern Cross Care Community Foundation is a special way of honouring the memory of a loved one who has passed away.

Families often choose a specific area such as the Community Foundation or individual Southern Cross Care property such as our hospice or research centre that they would like donations to be sent to in lieu of flowers.

If you are unsure if the family has nominated an area please contact the Foundation Manager on 8291 8000 and we can check for you. We will then notify the family of your donation.

Organising gifts in lieu of flowers

If you would like your friends and family to make a donation in lieu of flowers to honour the memory of a loved one, we suggest that you include the following wording in the funeral notice:

In lieu of flowers a donation in memory of <name of loved one> may be given to the Southern Cross Care Community Foundation.

The Southern Cross Care Community Foundation has special In-Memoriam donation envelopes that can be made available at your loved one's funeral.

Your funeral director can organise this or you can call us directly on 08 8291 8000 to make these arrangements.
