End of Year Appeal 2022

We wish to thank all those supporters of TCFV who made an end of financial year donation in 2021. It was without doubt a most challenging year in all aspects. This year our operations have begun to return to something approaching normality. Many of our significant events have been able to take place in person – the Walk to Remember, the Mother’s Day High Tea and other such gatherings have given us the opportunity to meet together again. At the core of our operations, it has been great to see a number of our support groups returning to face to face meetings. While many of us adapted and even benefited from the digital meetings on platforms like Zoom, it is great to be able to gather in support of each other personally.

As the end of the financial year approaches once again, we wish to remind you all of the opportunity to make a donation to The Compassionate Friends Victoria. A tax deductible donation at this time significantly helps us to continue providing our support services to bereaved families across the state. We continue to explore meaningful ways of supporting parents, grandparents and siblings who are bereaved. The development of the Sibling Support on line chat service has been a great initiative over the past year or so. The organization greatly values the work of all the volunteers and staff who provide the energy and compassion which is as the heart of who we are.

If you are in a position to make an EOFY contribution, please donate below. We appreciate any donation you can make. This past year of pandemic conditions has meant that many people have struggled to cope. Our services in supporting those who are bereaved continue to be a vital link in the chain of community compassion. Please support us if you are able.
