While film fans around the world continue to mourn Philip Seymour Hoffman, his family has planned a very private funeral for loved ones.

Close friends and family will pay their respects at an undisclosed location on Friday in New York City.

A representative let fans know how they could best show their support:

"In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made in Phil’s name to two charities that were very close to his heart: The Dreamyard Project and the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation. The family wishes to thank everyone for their continued support and good wishes."

In case you'd like to donate, The Dreamyard Project is a NYC-based non-profit that focuses on keeping children active in the arts.

The Christopher And Dana Reeve Foundation, named for the late Superman star and his wife, is dedicated to research into the treatment of spinal injury and paralysis.

We're thankful for the thoughtfulness of all the fans. We only wish we could do more.

    if someone cant donate to either of those charities, i think it also appropriate to maybe donate to your local substance abuse center in his name.
