Celebrate and transform lives at the same time

Whether it’s honouring someone you love or celebrating a special occasion, you can choose to transform children’s lives in Timor-Leste in lieu of presents or flowers. You can encourage family and friends to make a gift in memory of a loved one, or support your fundraising efforts in celebration of a birthday, wedding or other special occasion. Read on and discover how you can choose to give in celebration and help children and young adults pursue the very special gift of an education.

Gifts in Memory

Losing someone we love is heart-breaking. Donating in their memory to a cause they deeply cared about is a wonderful way to honour their memory and celebrate their life.

By choosing Carmel Impact to receive donations made in memory of your loved one means we can provide the precious gift of an education, helping to transform the lives of young people in Timor-Leste. 

You can encourage your family, friends and colleagues to make a direct donation in lieu of flowers. Every donation received will be recognised. And of course, you can choose to keep your donation anonymous.

There are two ways to make a gift in memory of a loved one:

Donating Online

You can let your family and friends know that they can make a donation in memory of your loved one online. Create an online tribute page and share a unique link with them so that they may contribute and pay their respects.

Funeral Collections

Every person who makes a memorial donation at a funeral will be sent a letter of thanks with a receipt, which can be used for tax purposes if required and an acknowledgement letter to the next of kin. Call 03 9690 8822 or send us an email.

Celebrate a special occasion with a gift that can transform lives

A gift in celebration is a wonderful way to support the hopes and dreams of children and young adults in Timor-Leste.

If you’re celebrating a birthday, wedding or another special occasion consider asking your friends and family to donate to Carmel Impact instead of buying a gift for you. You can create your own fundraising page, letting your family, friends and networks know they can donate to your cause.

Comfort for grieving loved ones

When you send one of our Sympathy Prayer Cards you are letting a person know that the Carmelites will hold them in their prayers during their time of grief. A Mass is also offered for the deceased person and their grieving family. Our Sympathy Prayer Card is one of six unique Carmelite Prayer cards marking significant life moments.
