The word ‘fun’ is in fundraising for a reason! Fundraising is one of the most enjoyable and rewarding ways you can help support Epilepsy Action Australia. There are so many different ways you can get involved and make a difference. You are only limited by your imagination!

If you would like to discuss your idea or need advice, please contact us on 1300 37 45 37 (1300 EPILEPSY) or fill in the form on the right hand side of this page.

Throughout each year, energetic and dedicated Australians organise and participate in events that raise much-needed funds for those with epilepsy and their families. We thank them for their hard work and generosity.

Purple Day

Held on March 26th each year, Purple Day is a global initiative to raise awareness of epilepsy.

Your Own Fundraising Event

Fundraising is a great way to make a difference and have a lot of fun any time throughout the year! We have a huge number of fundraising ideas to help you get started!

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 doing something challenging closer to home? Then Adventure Fundraising is for you!


November is epilepsy awareness month and to celebrate we invite our supporters to host a CommuniTEA event – a great opportunity to picnic outdoors and gather with family, friends, community groups, a club or colleagues for delicious treats, laughter, fun, fundraising and of course to generate awareness of epilepsy. Simply choose what you’d like to do on a day in November and at a time that best suits you!


Make your next celebration mean so much more. Your special day can help improve the lives of those with epilepsy and their families. Find out how you can celebrate your birthday, wedding, anniversary or festive occasion with a difference.

Corporate Partnerships

Partnering with Epilepsy Action is a great way to fulfil your corporate responsibility and show your staff and clients that you care about making a positive difference to people who truly need your help. There are numerous ways you can get involved including workplace giving, matched giving, company fundraising, and through the donation of profits, goods or services.
