Giving In Memoriam

Saying goodbye is never easy, but Giving In Memoriam to the RCH Foundation is a meaningful way to honour a loved one who has passed. These generous donations make a great difference to the children and families cared for by the hospital.

Making a donation

The easiest way to donate in memory of a loved one's celebration is through our online donation form.

The RCH Foundation can also provide In Memoriam donation envelopes upon request. Please complete the In Memoriam online form to order envelopes. The RCH Foundation will contact the Next of Kin to inform them of who donated in memory of their loved one and how this generosity has made a difference.

To make a donation offline, please contact Amanda Caldwell, Community Fundraising Coordinator on 03 9345 5037.

All donations over $2 are tax deductible and will receive a tax receipt.

Online fundraising

One of the easiest ways to fundraise In Memoriam is through fundraising platforms like Everyday Hero. Everyday Hero can provide you with your own fundraising webpage.

It’s free and easy to set up, can be customised with your own images and information, and has a unique web address so friends, family and colleagues can reach your page directly.

To get started visit

Follow the prompts to register your details and information about your fundraising activity. This information will populate your fundraising webpage template. Once the page is built, you can log back in at any time to add photos, posts and even donations received offline. For more info on creating an online fundraising page, visit the Everyday Hero Getting Started page.

Anyone who donates through your fundraising webpage can leave you a supportive message. They will also immediately receive an email donation receipt and Everyday Hero will add their donation to the fundraising tally on your webpage.
