In memoriam

Donating to SANE in memory of someone close to you is a very special way to honour their life and create a lasting legacy.

In memoriam donations are directed to the areas of greatest need in our organisation, providing support, research and advocacy for Australians affected by complex mental health issues.

How to donate in memory

You can donate online by selecting 'This gift is in memory'.

In lieu of flowers, we invite you to donate to SANE at www.sane.org/donate.      

Creating a tribute page

In choosing donations in lieu of flowers, you may decide to create an online tribute page for your loved one. Tribute pages are a special place for friends and family to post messages with their donation.

Everyone who donates to your page will receive a tax-deductible receipt directly for donations of $2 or more via this page.
