Philip Seymour Hoffman's Funeral Will Be Private

ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Philip Seymour Hoffman's funeral will be held Friday in a small private affair for just family and a few friends, a spokesman said Wednesday.

The family is also planning a memorial service for later in the month, which will be held in New York City.

"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 statement read. "The family wishes to thank everyone for their continued support and good wishes."

Broadway theaters will also dim their lights to pay tribute to Hoffman on Wednesday night.

Hoffman was found dead in his Manhattan apartment on Feb. 2, and had roughly 70 bags of heroin in his possession at the time, five of which were empty.

The Oscar-winning actor, 46, is survived by his girlfriend, costume designer Mimi O'Donnell, and their three young children.
