Gifts In Wills & In Memory Donations

Expressing sympathy for a loved one via an In Memory gift to the Gut Cancer Foundation’s work is a very thoughtful way of remembering someone whilst at the same time helping to make a positive difference to gut cancer outcomes in New Zealand.

It is one way of making a positive difference beyond your lifetime.

In memory

Creating an online memorial page in remembrance of your loved one is a special way to remember them. Friends and family often find they gain strength, comfort and hope from knowing that their loved one’s memory and values live on through their tribute. It’s a beautiful way to celebrate a life.

Click here to set up your own “In Memory” tribute online page. Email friends and families to ask for donations in lieu of flowers and include the link to the page in funeral notices/order of service.

Alternatively, you can make a one-off donation online here and fill in the In Memory box.

Please note the person you are remembering and your own details to ensure a receipt can be issued. In Memoriam donations can be acknowledged to the bereaved family by instructing us to do so via email or letter.
