Giving in Remembrance
Thank you to the families who requested donations to ILFA in lieu of flowers at the funerals of loved ones to honour their memory. We are always humbled by the capacity of people to think of ILFA at times of deep personal loss. Thank you for your kind support. Please contact us if you would like any help or advice.
Giving in Celebration
Celebrate your special occasion by asking family and friends to make a donation to ILFA instead of buying you gifts. Enjoy your birthday, wedding or special anniversary celebrations knowing that you’re supporting ILFA’s work. Please contact ILFA if you would like information on how we can support you to support us.
ILFA will provide you with beautiful cards for the tablets at your reception informing your guests that a donation has been made to ILFA in lieu of wedding favours. Pleae contact us in advance of your special day so we can work with you to design and print the cards. We’re grateful to all the couples who make a donation and raise awarness on their special day.
A legacy gift or a charitable legacy is a donation left to a charity in an individual’s will. If you are making your will or updating it, please consider leaving a legacy gift to ILFA after you have looked after your loved ones. All amounts would be greatly appreciated and will be used to help ILFA continue our work supporting lung fibrosis patients. As an added benefit, all legacy gifts are excluded from inheritance tax. If legacy giving is something you would like to do, please update your will to reflect your decision and ensure that your wishes are carried out in the future. Thank you!
