Celebrate with donations in lieu of gifts

Are you celebrating a birthday, wedding or christening? Why not hold a party and help outsmart cancer.

Whatever your occasion is, in lieu of giving gifts, you can request your guests to make a donation to ACRF. 

Donating in celebration of a wedding, birthday, anniversary or a festive occasion is a wonderful way to add meaning to a special day and help speed up cancer discoveries.

At ACRF, our mission is to outsmart cancer by funding scientific research to improve prevention, diagnosis and treatments of all types of cancer. By setting up a donation in lieu of gifts, your celebration will be making a life changing difference to those Australians affected by cancer both now and in the future.  

We can provide you with a selection of cards and ACRF ribbons, depending on your event.

Weddings

Wedding gifts that give back

With many modern couples accumulating their household goods before they tie the knot,  asking for charity donations in lieu of wedding gifts is are becoming an increasingly popular option for both guests and the happy couple.

Whether you wish to replace traditional gifts with a wedding donation, replace a favour or bonbonniere in the same way or set up a wishing well, wedding gifts that give back help add meaning to your wedding. All funds received by ACRF will help fund new and better treatments for cancer.

For a minimum donation of $2 per wedding guest, you will receive an ACRF ribbon and favour card for each guest (pictured below). We recommend ordering at least 10 days prior to your wedding.
