Fundraising is one of the most fun and exciting ways you can help to support Epilepsy Action Australia.

There are so many different ways you can get involved and make a difference – the only limit is your imagination! Check out our fundraising ideas below!

Your Own Fundraising Event

You can fundraise for us doing almost anything! We love the creativity of our supporters so you can organise your own fundraising event any time. We’ve even got a big list of fundraising ideas to help you get started if you’re not sure what to do.

Active Fundraising

Run, walk, cycle, trek or swim for Epilepsy Action! Getting involved in a community event is a great way to get fit, challenge yourself and help support an important cause at the same time. Compete as a team or individually in events around Australia, overseas, or in your own fitness challenge.

Adventure Fundraising

Do you dream of trekking Mount Everest? Cycling Cambodia? Walking the Great Wall of China? Or exploring Australia?
Then Adventure Fundraising is for you!

Purple Day

Purple Day is a global initiative to raise awareness of epilepsy and is held on the 26th March each year.
Colour your world purple and take action for epilepsy!


November is epilepsy awareness month and to celebrate we’re asking you to host an E-Tea event – a great opportunity to gather with family, friends or colleagues for delicious treats, laughter, fun, fundraising, and of course to generate awareness of epilepsy.

Art For Epilepsy

An opportunity for artists to come together to help raise awareness and funds for epilepsy. If you are an artist you can get involved by donating a piece to our auction, and if you’re an art lover you can snap up a beautiful piece at a great price for a wonderful cause.


Donating in celebration of a wedding, birthday, anniversary or festive occasion is a wonderful way to add meaning to a special day. Celebration charity donations can involve asking guests to make a donation in place of gifts, or the gift-giver can replace a traditional gift – such as birthday or Christmas presents – with a charity donation.

Corporate Partnerships

Supporting the work of Epilepsy Action is a great investment for your organisation.

There are numerous ways you can get involved including workplace giving, matched giving, company fundraising, donation of profits, goods or services.
