Donation Box Program
Your small change adds up to a fantastic source of fundraising for end of life care. As an individual supporter you can take home one of our cute Heritage Piggy Banks to collect your spare change and donate to Hospice. If you are a business or organisation, you can show your support by placing an Ipswich Hospice Care donation box on your shop counter, for collection by our volunteers.
We are often asked by family members how they can support us after a loved one has died. Many families choose to ask for donations in lieu of flowers at their loved one’s funeral. We are eternally grateful to these families for thinking of us at such a difficult time in their lives.
If you would like to use our donation envelopes for a funeral, please call Ipswich Hospice on 07 3812 0063.
Support Ipswich Hospice with the purchase of a paver engraved with words of your choice, to be placed in the paths around Hospice gardens.
Commemorate a loved one or show your business or individual support for our community organisation.
Shop with our local partners:
If you shop at Drakes Supermarket, pick up a token at Ipswich Hospice, show it to the cashier at the checkout and Drakes will make a donation to Ipswich Hospice Care. What could be easier than that?
