GUEST DONATIONS IN LIEU OF GIFTS AT YOUR NEXT CELEBRATION
Make your next social event or celebration more meaningful by asking your friends and family to donate to the Christina Ghobadi Foundation, instead of bringing a gift.
We have partnered with GoFundraise, an online fundraising platform, that can help you create a unique fundraising page for your celebration. Your and your guests can then enjoy the event, knowing that they are benefiting young people living with cancer.
Please contact us if you need any help with setting up your fundraising page.

Consider your options
You can give a percentage of what’s left of your estate, or a specific sum of money or even a property.
Seek the advice of an independent solicitor or qualified legal advisor before making or changing your will and before choosing executors to administer your Estate.
Your legal adviser can help you to use the appropriate wording to ensure your gift is directed as you wish, and to use the correct name of our organisation: The Christina Ghobadi Foundation Pty Ltd.
Use our suggested wording
“I give and bequeath free of all duties (here state the amount/percentage or share/residue or assets to be gifted) to THE CHRISTINA GHOBADI FOUNDATION absolutely for the general charitable purposes of the said Foundation and I direct that a receipt of the proper officer for the time being of The Christina Ghobadi Foundation Pty Ltd shall be a good and sufficient discharge to my trustee/s.”
