Leave a legacy in your lifetime that has the power to transform lives.

Charitable gifts in the form of a bequest are one of the most valued and important sources of funding for the St Vincent de Paul Society in Western Australia, and we sincerely thank you for considering leaving a life changing gift in your will.

Sadly, the demand for our services continues to grow. Thanks to the generous support of people like you we are able to carry out our core work of emergency relief and specialist programs and services, all while continuing to advocate for a more just and compassionate society.

In Memory

A donation in memory of a loved one is a meaningful way to celebrate their life and values. There are many ways to honour a loved one, and these include:

Donations in lieu

Many families encourage guests to donate to Vinnies WA in lieu of flowers at a funeral. We have special in-memory donation envelopes that can be displayed at the service, or you can include a message within the funeral notice. To request donation envelopes or for other enquiries regarding in-memory donations, please call our Planned Giving Coordinator Natasha Prins.

Create a personal tribute page

You can create a personal tribute page and invite friends and family to make an online donation. They also have the opportunity to leave a personal message and the page can be shared among their networks and social media platforms.

Direct donations

You can make an in-memorial donation on our website, and can choose to include the deceased’s name and their next of kin if you wish to have your in-memory donation acknowledged. Please note we do not disclose the donation amount in the acknowledgement.

Regular contributions

A symbolic way to remember a deceased friend or family member is to make regular donations to mark special days like their birthday, anniversary or other special event in their life.
