Gifts In Celebration
Asking for donations instead of gifts is an inspiring way to allow family and friends to mark your special occasion and support our life-saving work.
Donations in lieu of gifts are simple to arrange and are the perfect alternative gift for any celebration you have in mind, be it a wedding, birthday, anniversary, christening or naming day.
Whatever the occasion, Heart Research Australia would like to wish you the very best on your special day and thank you for supporting us in the fight against heart disease.
Create Your Own Special Occasion Page
You can make any celebration special with an online Give in Celebration page. By encouraging family and friends to donate to heart research you are giving the precious gift of heart health to all Australians. And with two out of three families affected by heart disease, the person you save could be you or someone you love.
Your Gift In Celebration page can be personalised with pictures and wording. Sharing your Gift in Celebration page with family and friends is simple via email, Facebook and Twitter. Every donation is then recorded on your fundraising page along with a message of support from your donors. Everyone who makes a donation of $2 or more to your page will receive a tax-deductible receipt.
In Celebration Cards
We can provide you with special donation cards and envelopes which you can either send out with your invitations or have available at your celebration. Your friends will be sent a receipt letter and if required, we can send you the final amount contributed.
To order, simply call our Philanthropy Manager Diane van de Merwe on 02 9436 0056 or email [email protected]
Make the first thing you share as husband and wife a beautiful gesture of generosity and love. In lieu of traditional wedding favours for your guests, a Heart Research Australia wedding favour will help to give the gift of heart health to all Australians.
These elegantly designed table cards, complete with thank you message, are embellished with a Heart Research Australia lapel badge. Magnetic fastenings on the badges mean that they can be worn without damaging delicate fabrics. And because all proceeds go to funding heart research, they are a meaningful way to thank wedding guests for their attendance or remember loved ones who can’t be there to celebrate your special day. For a cost of $5.95 per wedding favour, we can provide each of your wedding guests with one of these beautiful Heart Research Australia cards and lapel badges. Minimum order 50.

A Heartfelt Gift
Like many little girls, Beccy Lee dreamed of the day when her father would walk her down the aisle to be married. She pictured him looking proud and handsome in his suit – with just a hint of a tear in his eye. Sadly, Beccy’s dream never came true, as a heart attack claimed her father’s life when he was just 49 years old. When the time came for Beccy to marry the man of her dreams, she chose to honour her father’s memory and support heart research by presenting her wedding guests with Heart Research Australia lapel badges in place of a traditional thank you gift. Heart Research Australia was deeply moved when Beccy included us in her wedding in this meaningful way.
Donate In Celebration
Donating to heart research is a meaningful way to celebrate special occasions or milestones. Your donation will power our researchers in their quest to make medical breakthroughs into heart disease happen. Your support will save lives, and keep families together for longer.
