As an individual

Memorial donations; remembering a loved one

You can remember and celebrate the life of someone you love by making a memorial donation to the Tonkinson Foundation. A Memorial Gift is a thoughtful way to pay tribute to the life of a friend or family member and, at the same time, support research which will help others.

You may like to mark a special occasion such as a wedding, birthday or anniversary and add meaning to an already special day by making a donation.

You can donate online here.

One-off or monthly donations

You can make a one-off donation to the Tonkinson Foundation. It takes a few minutes, and can be easily done online here. Every donation, however big or small, is greatly appreciated and will go directly to supporting our research work.

If you’d like to donate regularly, say once a month, then please click here.

Every donation over $2 is fully tax deductible.

Remember the Foundation in your Will

The Foundation was originally started with a very generous bequest from Jean and John Tonkinson. You too can continue this tradition by remembering the Tonkinson Foundation in your Will. Not all gifts come from wealthy people and your gift, of whatever value, combined with those from other supporters, will make an important contribution to funding our work. Remember, we are not government-funded and rely entirely on private and corporate donations.

There are many ways you can leave a gift to the Foundation in your Will after you have looked after the people you care about. Learn more about how to leave a gift.
