Donate in lieu of a gift

Celebrate with a donation or event

Are you celebrating a special occasion this year and would like to add extra meaning to your special day? With the ASRC part of your important day, you can put compassion into action by hosting an event, a wishing well or providing your guests with a ‘donation in lieu of gifts’ fundraising page. Please contact Jo Gumley on events@asrc.org.au who will be able to help you.

We now also offer an ASRC wedding favour – a gift that gives back.

For a small donation per wedding guest, you’ll receive a symbolic memento of peace and favour card for your guests to take home with them in celebration of your special day.

Gifts in memoriam

A memorial gift in tribute to a loved one is a powerful way of honoring their memory.

To make a memorial gift today, please use our online donation form making sure to provide us with the relevant details of the memorial gift in the comments section.

For those planning to celebrate the lift of a loved one, there are a number of ways the ASRC can assist.

An important first step is to notify funeral guests of your wishes for memorial gifts in lieu of flowers is to include a message in the funeral notice which might read “In lieu of flowers, donations in memory can be made to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre, PO Box 2381, Footscray 3011.

We can also provide donation envelopes and forms for those attending the service of your loved one. In conjunction with the funeral director, these can be placed at the entrance and exit to the service, collected and sent through to the ASRC for processing and receipting. We’ll be sure to also let you know of the total.
