Commemoration Gifts

A gift to The OTIS Foundation is a special way to commemorate a person or an occasion. All gifts over $2 are tax deductible. A donation receipt will be forwarded to all donors.

How to arrange special occasion donations

When celebrating Christmas, a birthday or a special occasion, supporters can ask guests to give a financial donation to The OTIS Foundation, instead of a gift.

  • Download the “Celebration Gift Form” below and include with the party invitations sent to your guests. 
  • Your guests can then complete the form and send it to The OTIS Foundation along with their donation.

The OTIS Foundation
P.O Box 1191

  • The OTIS Foundation tallies all donations and provides you with a list of names and the total amount of the donations received (for privacy reasons we do not disclose individual donations amounts).
  • Tax-deductible receipts are issued directly to the donor (for all donations over $2).
  • For more information please contact us on (03) 5444 1185.

Organising a donation collection at a funeral

You can ask friends to give a gift to The OTIS Foundation instead of sending flowers. If you are organising a funeral, ask the Funeral Director to provide you with OTIS Foundation in Memory donation envelopes.

If they are unable to help you, please ask the Funeral Director to contact The OTIS Foundation on (03) 5444 1185.

A donation receipt will be forwarded to all individuals donors and a list of donors' names and addresses can be provided to the family upon request.

Collected donations can be delivered to our office, posted or collected by an OTIS staff member.

Delivery to: 

    The OTIS Foundation
    Shop 2 The Bendigo Centre
    Bath Lane 
    PO Box 1191 Bendigo VIC 3550

    If you would like people to make a donation to The OTIS Foundation instead of sending flowers we suggest you explain this in the death notice.  Below is an example:

    'Donations to The OTIS Foundation in lieu of flowers would be appreciated.'
