Donations of condolescence

Losing a close person is a painful experience. In this situation, it may be comforting to relatives to honour the deceased's wishes and connect your farewell with a gesture that makes a lasting impact. One option to do so is a donation of condolescence. Instead of perishable flower ornaments, you may choose to ask mourners for a donation, for example for cancer research.

With a donation of condolescence to the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg, you light a beacon for life. You support medical research and give new hope to cancer patients.

The process of donations of condolescence

Please get in touch with us via phone or email in order to allow us to support you during the process.

If you would like to ask for donations in a situation of bereavement, we recommend to mention this in the obituary already. This is an example:

Instead of flower arrangements and complying with the deceased's wishes, we ask for a donation towards the National Center for Tumor Diseases (NCT) Heidelberg. Donations account: LBBW Stuttgart, IBAN: DE64 6005 0101 7421 5004 29, BIC: SOLADEST600, beneficiary: Nationales Centrum für Tumorerkrankungen (NCT) Heidelberg, designated use: D10070680, funeral service for "first name and last name of the deceased".

After the service, you will receive a list of donors as well as information on the total sum of donations made.

If you have any questions regarding this process, Regina Hohmann is at your disposal via phone and email. Phone: 0049 6221 56-36146, email: fundraising@nct-heidelberg.de.
