Amid the sadness surrounding the loss of a beloved family member or friend, there is a poignant and positive way of commemorating their life while assisting future generations. 

A special in-memory gift to HMRI enables medical researchers to bring hope to families around Australia and throughout the world. It is a fitting and everlasting legacy for a special person.

HMRI is honoured to accept these generous contributions and our researchers are humbled to have their life-changing work supported in such a heartfelt manner. We want to ensure that leaving a gift is as easy as possible, and that your wishes are respected.

Some people choose to ask for monetary donations in lieu of flowers as a way of supporting medical research. In-memoriam envelopes can be provided to you. 

A modern and increasingly popular approach for funerals is to have a laptop computer for people to donate online (receipts are forwarded to their home email). HMRI can also set up a secure online donation page for those who are unable to attend.

Ongoing contributions can be made to mark a birthday or other event in your loved one’s life. At a later date, you may also consider including a page in our HMRI Book of Remembrance. This features photos and tributes to people who have provided for HMRI in their Will, or whose families or friends donated money to HMRI in their memory.

The HMRI Book of Remembrance is located at reception in the HMRI Building. We welcome family members and friends of those who have passed away to visit and view the book at any time.

If you would like assistance in organising an in memory donation, please contact the HMRI Development Team on 1300 993 822 or complete the form below. Thank you sincerely for considering HMRI at this time.
