In Memory Gifts for MD

A thoughtful way to pay tribute to someone who has passed away and help support others living with Muscular Dystrophy, is to make an In Memory Gift to the MDA.

Donors can choose to make a one off gift, or family can request that In Memory Gifts be made in lieu of giving flowers.

A letter will be sent to the family or next of kin, expressing condolences and acknowledging the support of all individuals who made an In Memory Gift in their loved ones name.  The amount donated in the name of their loved one will be expressed as the total sum of all donations.  Names of all donors are mentioned but not the individual amount donated.

When a family requests that In Memory Gifts be made in lieu of receiving flowers, MDA can supply In Memory Gift envelopes and have these envelopes delivered promptly to the Funeral Director.

In Memory Gifts are donations and as such all In Memory Gifts over $2 are tax deductible.  Every individual who makes an In Memory Gift will be sent a receipt which can be used for taxation purposes.

For more information on making an In Memory Gift or to organise delivery of In Memory Gift envelopes, please contact the MDA on (03) 9320 9555.
