Fundraise in Memory

Celebrate the legacy of someone special by helping to shape a child’s future.

How you can make a difference

If improving the lives of current and future generations was a cause close to your loved one’s heart, then this is the perfect way to honour them.  

Your gift to Save the Children will make an enormous difference to the lives of children in Australia and all around the world. Through education, shelter, water, food and security, you can help children to live, learn and thrive.

A special way to honour a loved one is by providing the opportunity for friends and family to make a memorial donation to Save the Children to celebrate their life, instead of sending flowers. 

How it works

You can make a donation in memory, celebrating the life of a loved one at any time. You may choose to make a donation in recognition of a significant date each year, or offer a gift as a one-off donation. We would be more than happy to have a conversation to help figure out the best option for your unique circumstance.

You may like to provide the opportunity for friends and family to honour their loved one together.


A simple and convenient option is to set up an online donation page. This makes contributing easy and accessible for everyone, even those unable to attend the service.
You can include a photograph of your loved one and information about their life on the donation page. The link can then be emailed to family and friends, and they can leave a message of condolence for the next of kin when they make their donation to Save the Children Australia. 


We can post donation forms and envelopes for you to distribute at the service. You can also download our donation forms. Once all the donations are compiled, if you would like we can send an acknowledgement letter to the next of kin, listing the names of those who have made a gift.
Please email if you would like to arrange this.

Thank you

A gift in memory of a loved one is a wonderful way to support children around the world. Thank you for choosing to support us during this time of mourning, and for honouring your loved one in this special way.
