In memory giving
When you lose someone close to you, a donation to Macquarie University will honour your loved one and help their memory live on.
Your gift can be used to support the area of greatest need, or can be to a specific fund or program.
How to make a gift in Memory of your loved one?
In making a gift, you are not only supporting vital research programs, important community programs and shaping the lives of our students, but you are recognising and honouring your loved ones in a very special way.
When you make an In Memory donation, Macquarie University will send you a letter of acknowledgement to the bereaved family to let them know that you have made a gift to support the future of our community.
