There are many ways you can support the Tender Funerals Network across Australia! As a not-for-profit organisation that strives to provide equal opportunities for all community members to have an affordable and meaningful funeral service, we continue to need the financial and practical support of our communities.
- Support Local
- Partner with Tender Funerals
- Donate to Tender Funerals
- Bequest - Leave a gift in your Will
We encourage community members to support your local Tender Funerals Service Site! Each service site in the Tender Funerals Network is at a different stage in development of providing local services, so each has different financial and resource needs, for example:
- Contributions of financial resources in an ongoing partnership
- Offers of suitable land, buildings or vehicles
- Infrastructure and resource donations
- Contributions of one-off donations
- Volunteering your skills and time
Please contact your local Tender Funerals site by clicking on the link below. We’d love to hear from you!
You can partner with our national site at Tender Funerals Australia to help us provide vital start-up, operational and capacity-building support to Tender Funerals services around Australia.
As a not-for-profit, Tender Funerals Australia needs the support of grants, philanthropic funders and partnered contracts so that we can provide ongoing vital oversight and growth opportunities for Tender Funerals. We can also broker larger partnerships to provide services or resources such as fleet cars, land and buildings to our sites.
With your help, we can help more communities start a not-for-profit Tender Funerals service, providing more affordable funerals to more families and changing the culture around death and dying – one funeral at a time.
Your support will be gratefully appreciated! Please contact us to share your ideas about a partnership or philanthropic support.
You can donate to your local Tender via their website, see the ‘Support Local’ tab.
Tender Funerals Australia is a national site that provides vital start-up, operational and capacity-building support to Tender Funerals services around Australia. We are still growing! We are seeking donations to raise funds to build the capacity of our local funeral service sites across Australia.
You can make a one-off donation or set up regular contributions to our fund. With your donations, we can help more communities start a not-for-profit Tender Funerals service, providing more affordable funerals to more families and changing the culture around death and dying – one funeral at a time.
By leaving a gift in your Will to Tender Funerals you can help ensure all Australians have access to meaningful and affordable funerals.
Making or changing your Will to include a gift to Tender Funerals Australia or to your local Tender Funerals Service Site could be as simple as contacting your legal advisor. Feel free to contact us if you would like more information about how to do this.
Alternatively, you could use an online option to create a simple Will. We’ve partnered with Gathered Here, an online Wills and Estates firm, who host a free and easy step-by-step online Will writing service. It takes less than 10 minutes. You can write your free Will and leave a gift to Tender Funerals Australia if you choose by visiting our Gathered Here page.
From its beginnings, Tender Funerals has depended on the generous donations of time and skills of community members. Currently, our greatest need for volunteers is with the local funeral service sites (listed on our home page). However, at Tender Funerals Australia we are seeking people who could donate their skills in the growth of a national not-for-profit organisation – perhaps with particular skills in marketing, large scale fundraising and grant writing.
