    Donating In Memoriam

    What it's about

    Donating In Memoriam to Cancer Council SA can be a meaningful way for family, friends and loved ones to show support to the grieving, and to remember someone lost to cancer. In lieu of flowers or other gifts, individuals or families planning a funeral may wish to request that attendees make a donation toward Cancer Council SA’s local support, research and prevention programs. Donations can either be collected at the funeral, made online, or sent via post.

    Where the money goes

    Donations In Memoriam are directed to Cancer Council SA’s general pool of funds. These funds are used across the organisation, including funding our research projects that find new and better ways to treat and detect cancer, prevention programs that empower people to reduce their cancer risk, and support services that help to ease the burden for South Australian families impacted by cancer.

    How you can help

    We recognise that many families and individuals may feel strongly about including Cancer Council SA in their funeral, and our goal is to make the entire process as simple as possible, for both yourself as a funeral service provider, and the next of kin. We provide everything needed to ensure you can facilitate the family’s wishes to include Cancer Council SA in a funeral. This includes the necessary tools, support and information to provide complete peace of mind to the family that their decision, and that mourners’ generosity, is making a positive difference.

    Support from Cancer Council SA


    We can arrange for Cancer Council SA memorial envelopes to be available at the funeral or memorial service. Please call 1300 65 65 85 if you require collection envelopes to be sent out.


    Cancer Council SA volunteers are available upon request to attend the funeral and collect donations in line with the family’s wishes. Alternatively, this role may be taken on by a member of the funeral home.

    Depositing donations

    After the funeral, we may be able to arrange for a Cancer Council SA volunteer to visit you and collect the donations on our behalf. Should donors not wish to make a donation on the day, online and postal donations are also available, alternatively they can make a donation over the phone by calling 1300 65 65 85.
