Fundraising

We couldn’t do it without you! Your fundraising effort will help us make a real difference to the lives of people living with Parkinson’s by ensuring we can provide ongoing support services as well as invest in research.

There are many ways you can raise money that supports our vital work.

Our community fundraising section will give you lots of ideas and useful tips for your next fundraising activity.


Community fundraising

Parkinson’s Victoria relies on the community’s generosity to fund our information, education and support services. That’s why we are so grateful when people in the community support us by holding their own fundraising events. 

You may be an individual, a group, a Rotary Club, school, sports and social clubs, local businesses or other community organisations and it is through your collective fundraising you are able to make a significant contribution to the valuable work that we do.
