Make a Difference with a One-Off Donation

Your donation no matter how big or small will help Epilepsy Action Australia work towards increased care and support of people with epilepsy and their families. It will also contribute to research into better treatments and prevention.

Epilepsy is the world’s most common serious brain disorder, and is more prevalent than Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy combined. It can affect anyone at any time and unfortunately many of those commonly affected are babies and children. Even though epilepsy affects so many, we receive only a very small percentage of funding from the government. It is a devastating condition with widespread effects but remains woefully underfunded and under-researched.

As the largest and oldest national provider of specialist services, education and support, Epilepsy Action relies on the generosity of the community to continue to improve the lives of those with epilepsy.

As a registered Australian charity, any donations over $2 are tax deductible and will be gratefully received.

Any donation will be gratefully received and will put directly into funding services and research to help improve the lives of those with epilepsy.

Become a committed giver

You can join a community of committed Action Partners and Research Advocates who each month help improve the lives of those with epilepsy and their families through a regular donation.

Making a monthly donation is one of the best ways to support our vital work. Our valuable regular givers provide an ongoing and reliable income stream that assists us in effectively and accurately planning and providing our comprehensive services. It also means we can reach increased numbers of people nationwide and significantly reduce our administration costs so more funds can be directed to those who need our help.

You will benefit from knowing you are making a real difference to the lives of individuals in need of support and care, and will be kept regularly up-to-date on how your ongoing donation is being used.

By committing to a manageable monthly donation, you will help us provide a life-impacting change to the many babies, children, teenagers, adults and elderly who live each day with the challenges of epilepsy.

Monthly Giving is Quick and Easy

Each month we will automatically deduct your nominated amount from your credit card or bank account. You can increase, decrease or cancel your donation at any time by contacting us or your bank. All donations over $2 are tax deductible and we will send you an annual tax receipt each July.

Craig from NSW is one of our valued Action Partners who has regularly donated each month since 2004. Having a young adult grandson with epilepsy, Craig has seen first-hand how much of a positive difference Epilepsy Action’s services and support have made.

I thought it was a good way to support a charity I believe in. It’s not only convenient but it ensures my support is regular. For me, I worry if I don’t do it this way, without intention my donations may drop off the radar here and there, and I want to provide on going regular support.
