Memorials, Tributes, and Virtual Gifts A memorial gift in lieu of flowers Memorial gifts, in lieu of sending flowers to funerals or memorial services, are a wonderful way to pay tribute to the memory of someone you love. These special gifts are also a way for family, friends and colleagues to show that they care. When planning a funeral, please consider organising memorial gifts to Allevia. It is easy to arrange memorial gifts in memory of your loved one. Before the funeral Speak with your funeral director, who will assist you. Ask for the funeral notice to include: ‘Donations in memory of (name of loved one) may be made to Allevia. The funeral director can request them from us a supply of Allevia memorial envelopes. Thanking you Allevia will thank the family by sending a letter that lists the names of everyone who has made a donation in memory of their loved one. For privacy reasons, the individual donation amounts are not disclosed. Everyone who makes a donation is sent a letter of thanks and a receipt. You can make a donation as a tribute at any time.
