A gift in memory of your loved one

A gift in memory of your loved one

When someone close to you passes away you may like to consider a meaningful gift to Taronga Conservation Society Australia in memory of your loved one. You can also remember the life of your loved one by creating a special tribute page and seek donations in their honour. Rather than giving flowers at a funeral many families find it more meaningful to ask guests for a donation to a cause that was close to the heart of the person that passed away.

If you wish to make a gift In Memory:

  • Click here to create an online tribute and donation page. Write a story of your loved one and add a photo. Guests can write comments and give a donation to Taronga if they wish. 
  • Click here to make a one off credit card donation online.

How to inform guests to donate in lieu of flowers?

  • Share the link of your tribute page.
  • You may include the wish for a donation on your loved one’s death notice. Suggested wording: Please consider a donation in lieu of flowers to Taronga Conservation Society Australia, PO Box 20, Mosman 2088 or visit (name of the tribute page link).
  • Ask us for a pack of donation forms and return envelopes to be available at the funeral. Please contact Diane van de Merwe for any questions on (02)9978 4573 or email bequests@zoo.nsw.gov.au
