Painaustralia is a not-for-profit body and relies on donations and in-kind support in order to operate. Painaustralia welcomes support from individuals and organisations.
Although Painaustralia is a national body, there are many ways in which people can get involved in their local areas, and we look forward to hearing from you.
Make a Donation
For people who are not able to contribute in other ways, a donation is the best way to show your support. With one in five Australians living with pain, it is likely that someone you know is directly affected, and your donation will help them get the support they need.
You can make a regular donation, or a one-off donation, either as an individual or as a workplace or business enterprise. You may also wish to make a donation in memory of a loved one.
Donations of more than $100 will be acknowledged in the Painaustralia Annual Report, unless you wish to remain anonymous. Note that all donations over $2 are tax deductible.
Make a Bequest
A bequest to Painaustralia is a lasting way to help people living with pain. All bequests of more than $100 will be acknowledged in the Painaustralia Annual Report, unless otherwise advised.
You can downlaod a copy of our Bequest Form here, or for further information please contact us on (02) 9130 6086.
You can help make a difference to the lives of people living with chronic pain by volunteering your time or the services provided by your business enterprise. You may wish to volunteer for a particular fundraising event or advocacy campaign, or just give a little of your time each week. Painaustralia is also currently looking for healthcare professionals who would be interested in liaising with their Medicare Local on issues about chronic pain.
Support the Declaration of Montreal
As part of the 13th World Congress on Pain in Montreal, the International Pain Summit, hosted by the International Association for the Study of Pain in September 2010, the summit delegates from 126 countries supported a Declaration that Access to Pain Management is a Fundamental Human Right.
